160 LB 2A SECTIONAL CHAMPION - KEVIN ZANGE. At sectionals, Kevin earned a 3-2 victory over Mt. Carmel's Nathanial Morris in the championship finals. His opponent was 36-0 and ranked #4 in Illinois heading into the final and Kevin overcame a 2-0 deficit by scoring 3 points in the third period to upset his heavily favored opponent. After missing last year's state series and most of the season with an injury, Kevin is now 21-2 and ranked #9 in Illinois at 160 lbs. He was 2nd in the Fox Valley Conference two weeks ago and a Regional Champion last weekend in Harvard. He qualified for state as a sophomore and is heading back ready to battle.

182 LB 2A SECTIONAL CHAMPION - NICHOLAS SUNDBERG. Nick became the 182 lb Fox Valley Conference Champion two weeks ago and 2A Regional Champion last weekend. Yesterday he became the 2A 182 lb Sectional champion with a pin in the first period of his championship final match over Glenbrook South's Numan Ayhan (38-3). Nick is ranked #3 in the state at 182 lbs and will be one of the top seeds going into the IHSA State Finals next week. Nick's record is now 35-4 and he is undefeated against 2A wrestlers this season. Nick qualified for state as a sophomore but missed last year's state series with an injury. He's ready to make a huge return as a senior.

285 LB 2A SECTIONAL 4TH PLACE - DEVANTE' MARTYNE.Devante' finished fourth in the 2A Antioch Sectional, winning four of his six matches Friday and Saturday. He pinned state ranked Xavier Sanchez of Antioch in the semifinal wrestle backs to qualify for the State Finals. His two losses were by decision to the same wrestler, #5 ranked James Valentino from St. Viator in the quarterfinals and in the 3rd place medal match. Devante' was third in the FVC and third at the Harvard Regional. This is a huge accomplishment for "Big D," as he just started in the sport of wrestling last season. 

It was a great weekend of wrestling for the City of Woodstock, as Woodstock North and Marian Central also qualified three wrestlers each for State. Congrats to all nine of the Woodstock area state qualifiers!

The following 12 WHS choral students were selected to the District VII Honor Choir:
Caroline Arana 11, Soprano 2
Ryan Baier 11, Bass 2
Emma Browne 12, Soprano 1
Austin Ellegood 11, Bass 1
Sam Geggie 12, Tenor 1
Andrew Gippert 10, Tenor 2
Molly Griffin 10, Soprano 2
Katy Holub 12, Soprano 1
Maggie Little 11, Alto 2
Patience McKenzie 11, Alto 2
Micah Muhlenfeld 11, Bass 2
Nathan Sites 12, Bass 1

The District VII Honor Choir is made up of the top choral students in the entire Northeastern part of the state and is considered the most competitive of the nine districts in the state. There were about 800 choral students auditioning and each school could only send their top four students on each vocal part. Only the top quarter of the students auditioning were chosen for the Honor Choir, and then only the top few on each voice part were selected to the Illinois All-State Choir and All-State Honor Choir. The All-State selectees will not be announced until the first week in December.
The vocal audition consists of singing two chosen selections from five that the students prepared, sight reading, singing arpeggiated triads, and major and minor scales. 
Woodstock was one of the smaller schools auditioning in the district. There were only 5 other schools that had more students selected. 


The following students participated in a highly competitive audition process for admittance into the Illinois Music Educators Association District 7 Honor Band and Jazz Band:
Kelly Read-Clarinet
Kathryn Dawdy-Bassoon
Connor Zankle-Bass Trombone
Lee Evans-Trumpet
Josey Brown-Contra Bass Clarinet
Nathan Sites (Jazz)-Trombone
Sam Jones (Jazz)-Trumpet
District 7 encompasses all school districts in the northwest suburbs from Niles all the way through Harvard. It is by far the top music district in the entire state and as such, if a student auditions into the ensemble, is one of the highest honors a student can earn. 
This is the highest number of participants that WHS has had in at least the last 7 years as 11% of our band program will be represented in this prestigious honor band. We placed in the top 10 schools for percentage of program represented and are very proud of our students and the accomplishments that they have attained this early in the year.

6th Annual AP Honor Roll

Woodstock Community Unit School District 200 is one of 15 districts in the State of Illinois to be honored by the College Board with placement on the 6th annual AP District Honor Roll.  The honor is given to districts in the U.S. and Canada that simultaneously achieved increases in access to Advanced Placement® courses for a broader number of students and also maintained or improved the rate at which their AP students earned scores of 3 or higher on an AP Exam, which in turn can be counted toward college credit at most universities.

In 2015, more than 3,800 colleges and universities around the world received AP scores for college credit, advanced placement, and/or consideration in the admissions process, with many colleges and universities offering credit in one or more subjects for qualifying AP scores. 

Inclusion on the 6th Annual AP District Honor Roll is based on the examination of three years of AP data, from 2013 to 2015, looking across 34 AP Exams, including world language and culture. The following criteria were used.

Districts must:

  • Increase participation/access to AP by at least 4 percent in large districts, at least 6 percent in medium districts, and at least 11 percent in small districts;
  • Increase or maintain the percentage of exams taken by black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, and American Indian/Alaska Native students; and
  • Improve or maintain performance levels when comparing the 2015 percentage of students scoring a 3 or higher to the 2013 percentage, unless the district has already attained a performance level at which more than 70 percent of its AP students are scoring a 3 or higher.

District 200 has met or exceeded each of these criteria and is honored to be included on the 6th Annual AP District Honor Roll for the State of Illinois.
