Alum to be honored at basketball halftime

Posted in: Alumni by T. Wetzel

The Wilmot varsity boys basketball team will honor former standout Greg Bush during a halftime ceremony Friday, Feb. 14.

Bush’s school-record 41 points in a single game was broken by current Wilmot senior Brandon Schattner in a game against Burlington Friday, Jan. 17. Schattner scored 45 points, including five 3-pointers and eight of nine free throws, in a 75-71 loss to the Demons.

The previous record was set by Bush on Feb. 3, 1961, against Elkhorn. Bush later went on to attend DePaul University on a basketball scholarship, where he played for legendary coach Ray Meyer. Bush, a four-sport standout at Wilmot, was the Southern Lakes Conference MVP in both football and basketball as a senior.

Bush is the long-time owner of Champs Sports Bar and Grill, Lake Geneva.

Wilmot Athletic Director will introduce Bush to the crowd and make a presentation on behalf of the school Feb. 14, followed by a few comments from Bush. The boys game that night will immediately follow the varsity girls game against Burlington, which begins at 6 p.m.

Alum wins Hackathon, chance to intern at Facebook

Posted in: Alumni, Community, General by T. Wetzel

One of our own, Josh Betz (class of 2009), could be one of Facebook’s next interns. Betz and his team, which included three others, competed against other teams in a Hackathon hosted by Facebook at the University of Wisconsin – Madison.

Their task: to create something new. Their deadline: 12 hours. All teams were charged with the task of creating something new; a project never previously worked on. The Hackathon began Friday, September 23 at 5:00 p.m. and the timer ended 5:00 a.m. the next morning. In the UW Tong Auditorium, Betz and his team created GoodMate, a roommate management system.

Here’s what Betz had to say about the experience,

I’ve worked on projects for long periods of time before, but never all night. It’s hard to keep track of what you’re supposed to be doing at 3 or 4 in the morning. It got a little stressful at times, but we got it done in time and it was the best feeling in the world when they called our name and I knew we were going to Palo Alto.

Betz & team will be flown to Facebook Headquarters in Palo Alto, CA to compete against winning teams of Hackathons held at other universities across the country. Betz is excited he could possibly earn a spot as an intern for Facebook.

Here’s a video that briefly documents the event.

Josh Betz is currently attending the University of Wisconsin – Madison and plans to graduate in 2013 with a Bachelor degree in Computer Science. Since graduation, Betz has continued involvement at WUHS. He has worked seasonally in the IT Department and has designed/developed the school website.
