Everyone that comes out will participate. No one will be sitting on the bench at a meet. Runners should have a wrist stopwatch and a good pair of running shoes. If your shoes are new, walk around in them for a few days to break them in before the season starts.
The tryouts for JH Softball will be held July 23, 24, and 25, at Jane Grebner Field located directly behind the high school. Girls entering 6th, 7th, and 8th grades are eligible to try out.

Catchers should bring their equipment if they have it. Tryouts will be closed, so please drop your daughter off at the field and pick her up at the assigned time.
If players do not have a current physical within the last year, they WILL NOT be able to participate in tryouts. Players will also need the completed insurance waiver form (found on the district website) filled out by a parent and the $80.00 athletic fee BEFORE they are able to tryout.

Senior Lizzie Bleyer captured the second IHSA state title for Williamsville High School for the 17-18 school as she finished first in headline writing at the IHSA State Journalism Finals on Friday, April 27, 2018. Congratulations to Lizzie, Mr. Gudwien, and the entire journalism program on this huge accomplishment.
The Williamsville Sports Boosters has been a key organization in the success of the WCUSD 15 Athletic Department by providing a large number of resources to both our coaches and athletes to help them succeed in their respective sports; over the course of the last five years, the booster club has given back almost a quarter of a million dollars that have supported both high school and junior high sports!
Due to the increased financial instability of Illinois, the Williamsville Sports Boosters support will be even more valuable in the years to come. You can continue to help this organization in their support of both Bee Bee and Bullet Athletics by attending the annual golf outing at The Rail in Springfield. The event will take place on Friday, July 6 with lunch starting at 12:00 pm and golf at 1:00 pm; please see the attached flyer for additional event and ticket information. We look forward to seeing you at this great event and helping to ensure the Tradition of Excellence that has been established continues for many years to come.

Congratulations to Coach Trimpe, Coach Vicich, and the entire Scholastic Bowl program on this huge accomplishment.
