Williamsfield at TECH 2015

Springfield, Ill. - Students from Williamsfield High School in Williamsfield explain their project to State Sen. Darin LaHood (R-Dunlap) during TECH 2015, a demonstration of school technology on May 7, in the State Capitol.

 

TECH 2015 is designed to show state leaders what skills will be needed for the Illinois work force and how technology can improve teaching and learning. 

 

Aside from showcasing their own demonstration, the students were able to see what other schools in the state were doing with technology.

 

Collin Grubb of Williamsfield High School said of the event, "My favorite thing was seeing the three 2nd graders that had rebuilt a computer and made the game, Mario Cart. It was also really cool meeting Don Moffitt and Darin LaHood."

Bass Fishing team Qualifies for State!

Last year the Bomber Bass Fishing team had a late fish spit out the hook and just missed qualifying for state. The BIG ONE didn't get away this year! The Williamsfield Bass Fishing team took 2nd place at the IHSA Banner Marsh Sectional and earned a trip to the State Finals. Ironically, the big fish that didn't get away this year, died in the live tank prior to weigh-in. Only live fish count toward team totals (correction, the big bass did count towards total after a half pound deduction, however, it did not qualify for big bass). If boat #1 would've been able to count the monster (caught by Nick Kertz and landed by Jordan Stewart in a boat captained by David Krans), Williamsfield would have won the sectional title. But hey, even without the fish, boat #1 finished almost two pounds ahead of the third place team! Williamsfield boat #2 also had a solid day on the water finishing 6th out of fifteen boats. Excellent job gentlemen! Coach Rigg and the team will travel to southern Illinois and Carlyle Lake to compete in the two-day State Finals event May 15-16. Click HERE for state tournament information. Members of the team include:

Boat #1: Nick Kertz, Jordan Stewart, Donnie Zimmerman (Driver: David Krans)

Boat #2: Drake Chandlee, Curtis Howerton, Timmy Lynn (Driver: little Markie Chandlee)
