ACT Work Keys Test Date Change
Juniors will take the regular ACT at HUHS on Wednesday, February 20 as part of the statewide administration; however, the administration date for the ACT Work Keys has changed:  juniors will take the ACT Work Keys exam on Wednesday, March 13. 
The ACT exam days can be stressful and trying.  We are moving the ACT Work Keys exam to March so that students do not have two testing days back-to-back.  Our goal is to have juniors rested and rejuvenated for both exams.

In addition, DPI will be including both the ACT exam and the Work Keys exam as part of the annual School Report Card score.  It is important that students are focused and ready to do their very best on both exams. 
·        February 20, 2019:  ACT; 7:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.; Juniors only
o        Freshmen, Sophomores, and Seniors are not in attendance.

In the Classroom
Students in Mr. Dobberstein's American Literature class demonstrated the standard of evaluating choices structuring text by structuring their own "Missing Scene" from Lorraine Hansberry's seminal play Raisin in the Sun.  Students prepared engaging scripts and planned effective blocking in drama lecture.  Here Joseph Asagai (Michael Neumann) proposes to Beneatha Younger (Avery Arndt) after bounding into the scene from the audience.
Hartford Continues to Build Up Its Academic Legacy; Shines In "We The People" District Competition

"These kids these days" are in school discussing the intricacies of the Third Party Doctrine, the Chevron Deferrance, and Selective Incorporation of the 14th Amendment Due Process Clause.  Independently.  Their teacher is only a guide.   
The AP Gov students, almost entirely sophomores, represented our community well by showing off their analytical skills to the attorneys, judges, professors, teachers, and various other academicians and community leaders who served as judges.  

Many judges praised Hartford students for their high level of conceptual thinking, using evidence to back up claims, and their optimism in contemplating the ideals of our American Constitutional system.  

Hartford sent two teams to Tosa West.  The top scoring team will go on to compete in the State Competition in Madison on January 5th.  Stay tuned.  

A special "shout out!" goes to the Hartford contingent of judges Michelle Yu, Zack Weddig, Pete Kelly, Bill Greymont, and Attila Weninger for making the trip to Tosa, on a work night, the week before Xmas.  Above and beyond the call of duty!

Student Services

Does your senior have everything they need to make one of the most important decisions of their lives? Students who apply early to college are in a better position to capture financial aid and make important decisions that impact their college applications.   Seniors should be applying to post-secondary institutions if they haven't already begun to do so.    Apply online to any University of Wisconsin campus
At Apply.wisconsin.edu.    Information on Wisconsin private colleges/universities can be found online at    www.wisconsinsprivatecolleges.org   Wisconsin technical college information will be found at   www.witechcolleges.org       These websites are designed to be primary resources for easy access and information about the colleges, academics, degrees, athletics, and so much more!!    Don't delay in applying because housing and scholarship opportunities are often connected with admission. Remember:
  College Application Tip
Save the speech.  Tell the tale. No need to stress out about the college application essay or be nervous if you think of it as a conversation or a story about yourself.  You aren't giving a speech to thousands of people but someone in the Admissions Office who really wants to hear it! The essay is a story that means something to you and if you are able to convey that meaning to Admissions, you've done the job.
Seniors can talk to their English teachers for assistance or keep in mind there are peers available in the Writing Center in the LMC during Flex.
Junior Parent/Student Night

Germantown wins Hartford Union Duals
 The Warhawks won the dual-team event in Hartford on Saturday. No scores or records were provided by either Germantown or Hartford Union.
Germantown's Brent Miller (12-0), Isaac Riddle, Andrew Seramur and Jack Pluta went undefeated on the day.
"Wrestlers with less experience stepped up in all duals scoring bonus points and also saving
points," coach Jeff Szohr said. "Every wrestler contributed to our success on Saturday."

WRESTLING Slinger 54, Hartford Union 15 Slinger won six straight matches midway through its North Shore Conference dual against rival Hartford Union on Thursday to secure the victory.
After four matches, the dual was tied at nine.
The Slinger's Tyler Strupp
recorded a technical fall at 145 pounds and Jake Bernarde followed with a major decision at 152. Carter Amidon won by decision at 160, the the Owls had three straight pins - Timothy Gehring (170),  Bodhi Albrent (182) and Hunter Jeranek (195).
The Owls built a 39-9 advantage with four matches remaining - sealing the win.
Jake Melzer won by decision for the Owls at 126, Charlie Covert recorded a first-period pin at 285, Carter Ziebell earned
a shutout (6-0) at 106 and Noah Tonsor recorded a pin at 113. Hartford got wins from Jalen Spuhler (132, pin), Connor Gishkowsky (138, decision) and Justus Ojo (220, pin).

Maddy Sieczkowski's 3-pointer was just what Hartford Union needed. 
The senior guard hit a 22-foot, halftime-buzzer beating shot that gave the Orioles a four-point edge. The home team continued its run into the second half, pushed its lead to 11, then rode that to a 57-45 North Shore Conference victory against West Bend East on Friday. Sieczkowski's three put Hartford up, 22-18. The Orioles (2-3, 1-3 NSC) inbounded the ball with 10 seconds left after the Suns' Auburn Larson split a pair from the line for a 19-18 score. Sieczkowski took control of the ball from the pass in, and made her way down the court. The ball was moved around the perimeter, and found its way back to Sieczkowski, on the far side of the wing. with time running out. She dribbled in, then put a normal shot attempt over East's Katelyn Matanaer. It went in, and Sieczkowski smiled, shrugged and jogged off the court. "The three? I don't know if I thought (about it)," the Wisconsin-Whitewater commit said. "I didn't necessarily think it was going to go in, but you just have to get a shot up. Get a chance at least."

Owls fly past Orioles
By Gidal Kaiser
gkaiser@conleynet.com 262-306-5051
HARTFORD - CaSandra Warmsley's opponents aren't the only ones who get frustrated with her up-closeand- personal, frenetic presence on defense.
It bothers her teammates, too, when they have to face it.
"It's a struggle," senior point guard Sydney Reinhardt said of facing off against her classmate in practice. "She really puts pressure on everybody, to make us better.
That's what her goal is - to make everyone else better, and to make herself better.
"She's doing this in practice, and you can tell it works in games because she's never really tired. She's always in condition, and is always stopping the best  player on the court."
Warmsley's defensive prowess helped guide Slinger to a 62-43 North Shore Conference win Tuesday night against rival Hartford Union. She harangued Orioles all over the court, forcing turnovers, going after loose balls and causing as much of a ruckus as she could.
Warmsley was quick to point out coach Tony Dobson's defensive scheme forces everyone on the Owls to become a pressure defender.
"It's not only myself, and I don't think people realize it. It's the team, too. Dani (Biedenbender) came out with some big plays on defense tonight, Syd is always on the floor getting loose balls or going for steals," she said.
See  GIRLS,  PAGE B2  "It's not only myself, and I don't think people realize it. ... Our defense is a group effort. I know I stand out sometimes, but it's a group effort."

"Our defense is a group effort. I know I stand out sometimes, but it's a group effort," Warmsley added.
Warmsley spent most of the night, when both were on the court, harassing Orioles senior guard and playmaker Maddy Sieczkowski.
"Well, she is a very good defender, I'll give her that. Probably one of the best in the conference," Sieczkowski said. "I just keep that in the back of my head and do my absolute best to do anything to get past her. You have to get a little creative sometimes, and I try my best."
Locked in a tight battle with the Orioles a few minutes into the second half, Warmsley made her presence felt in the span of 35 seconds - and not just on defense.
Warmsley's theft right after Anna Breuer's 3-pointer led to a Reinhardt layup and a 35-29 lead. Breuer rebounded a quick Orioles miss, and Warmsley went up three times in roughly four seconds - first a layup attempt, then a putback attempt, and a second one.
The third time dropped in as Warmsley fell to the floor, and the lead was 37-29 off that six-point run for Slinger (5-1, 4-1). Hartford (2-4, 1-4) pulled within five later on a Sieczkowski 3, but the 37-32 margin was as closed as the host got.
Sieczkowski's 3 came at the 14 minute, 8 second mark of the second half, but the Orioles didn't score for nearly two minutes afterward.
"It is really hard," Sieczkowski said. "We started off really good - the whole first half, we were right with them. It just started slipping away.
"It really does suck, I'm not going to lie about that."
Down 9-1 early, Hartford rallied to pull itself within 13-11 on Alexis Williams' putback. Hannah Brooks later put the  visitors up 17-11, but Williams went on a 4-0 run. Slinger countered again and led 23-15, but the Orioles got a pair of Julia Stephans free throws and a Sieczkowski bucket for a four-point deficit (23-19).
Ramsey McGrew hit a 3 for Slinger, but Sieczkowski collected a three-point play and Maci Meyer put in a pair of free throws for a 26-24 score with 23 seconds left in the half.
Meyer missed a pair from the line to potentially tie the game with five-tenths of a second on the clock.
"They are a really good team," Sieczkowski said. "Hopefully next time, we stick with them long, if not play with them to the very end."
Brooks scored 10 first-half points and boosted the Owls offense as Reinhardt and Warmsley struggled in the first 18 minutes because of a combination of missed shots, fouls and turnovers. She ended with 12 points.
Brooks shrugged her shoulders when asked what got into her, leaving Reinhardt to praise the junior guard.
"I think a big part is she has her confidence back," Reinhardt said. "Last year, it was kind of a struggle - she was here and there at times. But when she starts hitting those threes, she gains confidence and brings it out on the court.
"She needs to keep bringing that to every game, every practice."
Reinhardt scored 11 of her 16 in the second half. Breuer added 12 and 12 rebounds. Warmsley had 10 points and nine rebounds and McGrew added 10.
Williams scored a game-high 18, while Sieczkowski had 11 for the Orioles.

Routing a rival
Late first-half run propels Hartford Union boys
By Adam Lindemer
alindemer@conleynet.com 262-306-5047
HARTFORD - With a little less than five minutes left in the first half Tuesday, Slinger trailed rival Hartford Union by one point.
In what remained of the first half, the Owls failed  to score another point, while the Orioles took an 11-point advantage into the break.
Hartford continued to extend that lead en route to a 63-41 North Shore Conference boys basketball victory to even Tuesday's doubleheader with the girls teams at a game apiece.
The Slinger girls beat  Hartford in the early game.
Slinger's Logan Homberg hit a 3-pointer with 4:45 left in the opening half of the boys game to pull the visiting Owls (2-4, 1-3 NSC) to within 19-18.
The Orioles (2-2, 2-2 NSC) ended the first half on a 10-0 run to grab the momentum.
"I think our 1-3-1 (press) bothered them a little bit," Hartford coach Kevin McKenna said.
"We talk about the first three minutes of the first half, the last three minutes  of the first half and the first three minutes of the second half," he added. "We really focus on those and have to execute. We have to start those strong and finish strong. We didn't do that against West Bend (East), but tonight, we did."
The Orioles lost to the Suns, 72-68, on Friday. It was a different story against their rivals Tuesday.
"We executed well. That was good Hartford basketball," Hartford sophomore Jadon Melvin said.
Melvin led all scorers with 21 points. He had 11 in the first half. Lucas Simon added 13 for the Orioles.
Simon added several rebounds and putback baskets.
"Lucas has brought toughness, energy and physicality," McKenna said of Simon. "That shows in his rebounding. We don't call much for him, but he's always around the ball, has soft hands and understands the angles."

Simon fills a hole Hartford feels was missing the last few years.
"Lucas is a great piece (of the team)," Melvin said. "He hasn't played the last three years. If he played last year, we would have been better. He's a good additional piece."
In the second half, the Orioles continued to build on their lead. Midway through the second half, Hartford led 4627, then bumped it up to 53-33 with 6:15 left.
Hartford was not satisfied with its advantage at halftime.
"We still had to play hard," Melvin said. "We don't want anyone coming back. We wanted to blow them out. We had to keep on the boards and keep getting our drives and (kick outs)."
McKenna was pleased his team did not give the Owls extra possessions, either.
"We only had nine turnovers," he said. "We average about 14. We valued the ball  more tonight. That was a good step."
Logan Homberg led Slinger with 14 points, while Brad Brewer added 10. Brewer sat on the bench most of the first half after picking up two early fouls.
The loss is the third straight NSC setback  for the Owls after beating Whitefish  Bay in the opener Nov. 27.
"We will learn from situations like that and others within the game tonight," Slinger coach Alex Lavine said. "Every day we are gaining valuable experience that will benefit our young roster as the season progresses.
"Our players are putting a lot of effort into getting better and we will have better nights."

The highlight of the OriOwl's swims at the Blackhawk Invite Saturday was when Dylan Webb broke the school record with his 21.50 that won the 50 Free. The time is .21 faster than the previous record, set by Tyler Remmel in 2009.
The Blackhawk Invite is a mini-state meet, with top teams from south Central Wisconsin and some of the fastest swimmers in the state.

A flipping good time
Shorthanded but deep Orioles pick up another North Shore Conference win

HARTFORD - Even if they're not at their best, Hartford Union's gymnastics team is still solid.
That was the consensus thought Wednesday after the Orioles beat West Bend West, 133.28-123.98, in a North Shore Conference dual meet. Hartford was without Ally Zickert, held out because of a minor injury, according to coach Mary Scherr, and a key element - assistant coach Michael Scherr, who serves as main spotter for the team, specifically on the vault.
But Myia Robinson was back in the lineup for
two events, and Hartford's trio of Courtney Mathis, Annie Mularski and Emily Perkowski paved the way for the Orioles.
"We had some changes in our lineup again ... but we had Myia back in for a couple events on varsity, and it's good to see that we do have more depth this year," coach Mary Scherr said. "It'll be fun to figure out as things go along."
Added Mularski, "I think
it went really well considering Michael was not here. But still did very good, and we all were in a positive mind."

Without Michael available, both Mularski and Perkowski performed toned-down vaults, and the team score - which was close to 34 the previous two meets - was a 32.6.
"They didn't want us, especially me and Annie, to get hurt without Michael," Perkowski said. "And it's a dual meet, so it doesn't necessarily matter all that much."
West scored a 32.85 on the vault. with four scores ranging from 8.075-8.45.
West's Olivia Burns had the 8.45, and Hartford's Alyssa Ohm was second (8.3). Mathis, Mularski and the Spartans' Ellie Core all tied for third with an 8.2.
Perkowski (8.6) and Mularski (8.5) led the way on the uneven bars, with Mathis and Ohm registering scores in the mid-7s. The Orioles had no falls on their quintet of beam routines, with Mularski (8.9), Perkowski (8.6) and Robinson (8.075) all scoring in the eight-point range.
"I was really happy with how we did - we were so consistent on the beam," coach Scherr said. "No falls tonight, and we only had a couple the
first couple meets. It's such a big improvement over the beginning of last year, even halfway through."
Hartford finished on the floor, and scored a 34.625. Mularski and Perkowski each broke 9.0, and Hartford collected five of the top six individual placements between the two teams.
West's Jenna Jansky and Robinson each scored an 8.35, tying for third.
After a solid teamwide effort on the vault, West struggled on the bars and saw several falls during beam routines.
"This was a rough meet," coach Kym Remillard said. "It feels like a lot of girls are tired and sore. I know we're not the only team that's been going straight through with  minimal days off competition, and we need to regroup and gain our confidence back."
