The Williamsville Sports Boosters and the Sherman Area Chamber of Commerce proudly bring you the 1st annual Bullet Dash 5K Color Run!

Race entries are $30.00 for adults, $20.00 for kids 14-under and kids 5-under are free. You can sign up online at, or contact the Williamsville Sports Boosters.

We recommend everybody wear a white shirt, for color purposes but is certainly not mandatory.

The event will kick off with a pre-party at the Sherman Athletic Club at 2:30 until the race starts. The race starts with the timed runners going at 3:45, and the remainder being staged starting at 4:00. The 3.1 mile race route will take you through Quail Ridge and Steeplechase, starting just south of the AC Club and finishing just north of the AC Club.

There will be Sherman Area Chamber of Commerce businesses, along with other vendors along the route providing giveaways, food, games and other business information.

All race entries will get a 10% discount at the Bullets Gear Trailer on hand that day.

In an effort to make the experience more enjoyable for all fans at Bullet Varsity Football games, Williamsville High School does not allow the saving and/or marking of seats prior to the gates opening at Paul Jenkins Field. All seating within the stadium is general admission and will be available on a first come first serve basis when gates open one hour prior to the scheduled kickoff time. Any and all materials placed on the bleachers prior to the opening of the gates on game day will be removed and confiscated. If you have any questions regarding this policy, please contact the athletic department at Williamsville High School.

 In what has become a tradition at Williamsville High School, the official athletic t-shirt for the 2018-2019 school year will be unveiled live at 9:00 am on Friday, August 17 on the Williamsville High School Facebook page. The athletic programs at WHS have carried on a tradition of excellence for many years, and just as in years past, we will be all in, all season. Show your pride in Bullet Athletics with this new t-shirt and let everyone know why it’s Always Better to be a Bullet!

We will also be running a special promotion in conjunction with the Williamsville Sports Boosters at Purple/Gold Night as well. For one night only, we will be discounting the annual subscription for Bullets TV and throwing in the official 18-19 Better to be a Bullet t-shirt for $45.00! With this subscription you will not only get access to events produced by WHS, but the entire Sangamo Conference! This includes over 150 regular season football, volleyball, boys’ and girls’ basketball games from the Sangamo. These two items normally retail for $75.00, and for one night only you will be able to get them both for $45.00! Quantities will be limited, so be sure to get this deal while supplies last.

The Williamsville CUSD 15 Athletic Department is proud to announce that four teams and activities from the 2017-2018 Spring season have been awarded the IHSA Team Academic Achievement Award. This brings the total for the 17-18 school year to sixteen teams and activities who have earned this award and an overall athletic department GPA average of 3.64.

In order to be eligible for this award, a team must have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher and have a minimum number of students participate on that particular team or activity, as set forth by the IHSA. All sixteen teams at Williamsville High School that were eligible during the school year for this award, achieved this mark of academic success. The bar has always been set high at Williamsville High School in terms of success for both academics and athletics. We are proud that this group of student athletes has carried on this tradition of excellence.

The more registered Max Cards, the better chance your school has at receiving a $1,000 or $5,000 check! Sign up between July 27 - December 31, 2018. Spending accumulates August 1 through December 31, 2018.

Seven WHS musicians were selected for ILMEA All-State Ensembles this year. This is the highest honor a student-musician can receive in our state. It is only through years of hard work and dedication to musicianship that this highest level of achievement is possible. It is a credit to the students and all of those that support them that they have progressed to this point. They will all participate in a 3-day state festival in late January and perform in ensembles with the best student musicians from around the state. Please help us in offering them congratulations!
