cross for the lone WHS goal.

making his header for the goal.
Coach John Chenoweth: "The Whippet players were ready for
action right from the starting whistle and maintained an even attack while
shutting down the Elkhorn offense who had the advantage of a stiff wind at
their back. Brian Reyes scored a header off a beautiful, long-ball cross from
Thomas McManaway in the 32nd minute to put the Whippets in the lead. The team
held the shut out and went into half-time with a 1-0 lead. Coming out of the
first half we knew Elkhorn would ratchet up their play to try to pull the game
back. Unlucky for us, they were able to find the goal only 32 seconds into the
first half. Five minutes later they found the back of the net again and
continued to apply pressure. We held Elkhorn scoreless for the next 20 minutes
with exceptional work from our defenders and goal-keeper. Elkhorn went up 3-1
with 20 minutes to go and we started to run out of steam. The final score was
5-1 with Elkhorn scoring 2 goals in the last 5 minutes of the game.
While we were working towards a better outcome than the final score
showed, there were many positive take-aways with great play from both starters
The team will regroup, work on a few items and get ready for
our next game, away at Division 1 Janesville-Craig on Thursday night."

Coach Nelson: "Whitewater played very well in their
matches as they moved the ball well and were very aggressive at the net. Amanda
and Ali at singles, and Milena Maroske and Treder Whitney at doubles took
control of their matches right from the start and never let go.
Hough and Hannah Delaney at 2 doubles and Odessa Sonn and Sophie Olson at 3
doubles also played very well winning their matches in straight sets. Sydney
Treder had a few things to work on in her 2nd set, but she stepped it up and
finished it off. Hailey Lohmeier was playing only her second singles match ever
and it allowed her to work on parts of her game.
Whitewater won't be in

Jaeger commented on the preliminary budget. One of the
messages we shared when we were going around discussing the operational
referendum two years ago was that it would not have an impact on taxes, meaning
you would not see an increase in your taxes, he said. It is good to
deliver on that message for a second year in a row, with another projected
decrease in the tax levy. For more from the Board meeting from Chris

of Whitewater gained its Wisconsin Bird City designation in 2014. The
Whitewater Urban Forestry Commission (UFC) is responsible for implementing and
fulfilling the requirements to maintain this designation.
Wisconsin mobilizes citizens and public officials who already know that birds
are more than beautiful - they are significant. A Bird City is a community
whose government educates its citizens about birds while implementing sound
conservation practices. Whitewater is one of them! Bird City Wisconsin
encourages its communities to address the decline of urban birds like the
Chimney Swift and Purple Martin, species that have declined in Wisconsin by
32.3% and 92.7%, respectively, over the last 40 years. They support our
community in our efforts to protect and manage green space, build and erect
nesting structures, landscape with native plants, reduce threats like
collisions, and generally make urban areas friendlier for breeding, wintering,
and migrating birds.
