Congratulations to the boys' track and field team on their recent successes.  Last Friday the freshman-sophomore team won the Sangamon County fresh-soph meet, on Saturday the varsity team placed fourth at the Carlinville Invite (17 teams), and last night the varsity team took third place in the Sangamo Conference meet (10 teams).


The World War II Showcase was held in Springfield on May 3, 2011, to announce the state-wide winning documentaries in the Illinois World War II Veterans Memorial Board Classroom Project.  Nine major prizes were awarded and a handful of "Second-Tier" recognitions were also made for the first time in the veterans category.  Of the nine major prizes awarded, Williamsville AP US History students won five of those prizes.  Congratulations to all!


Tying for first state-wide was the Eugene Osman Project, which was completed by Bo Bennett, Gabe Manning, and Alec Stephens. 


Out of the six honorable mention projects, Williamsville won four of the prizes.  The honorable mention winners were: 

1.  Vincent Speranze Project, which was completed by Elizabeth Choat, Kaitlin Lounsberry, and Savannah Sanner

2.  Maurice Stewart Project, which was completed by Sam Pensabene, Paul Priester, and J.J. Watson

3.  Bill Ortgessen Project, which was completed by Frannie Buescher, Abby Clark, and Abbey Stier

4.  Tony Leonetti Project, which was completed by Anna Butterfield, Lexie Emerson, and Kate Fowler. 


Williamsville received one of the "Second-Tier" recognitions, which were for those projects that made the cut in the first round to be considered for one of the nine top prizes but that did not win one of those prizes.  The Harold Flinn Project, completed by Melaney Brown, Laura Kilbury, and Kathryn Spenn, was recognized among those "Second-Tier" Prize honorees.
