September 14, 2020 – West Bend, WI – There was a lot of horn honking and well wishes on Bluebell Drive in West Bend as friends, faculty, and former UWM at Washington County athletes paid tribute to coach and retiring athletic director Deb Butschlick.
For the past 35 years Butschlick has worn a number of hats including mentor, confidant and mother of the Wildcat family. Fellow coaches and players praised her for her leadership, understanding, guidance, and compassion. She also had the best office at UWWC which often served as a study hall, lunch lounge, and a place to catch a couple winks between classes.
Butschlick submitted her resignation to UWM at Washington County in May at the end of this past school year. It was determined in April 2019 that conference athletic programs would be cut at the University in Washington County in 2020-2021.
Butschlick has since been hired as the volleyball coach at West Bend West High School.
