    Youth Trap Team Excels

    TrapThe Youth Trap Team took 2nd place for the IOWA CUP. This is the most coveted, sought after award. The best we have ever finished is 6th place. This year we took 2nd behind Maquoketa, who has won it the last 5 years in a row. This award goes to the best team in the state period! It takes into account all you do in league play and tournaments and the 2 State Championships; Iowa High School State Trap Championships on Friday and The SCTP(Scholastic Clay Target Program)State Championships on Sat. I couldn’t be more proud of the kids and the way they represent our school. One of our shooters will be heading to Colorado Springs next month (he is only one of 2 Iowa Boys). This was by far our best year since we started in 2009, and we will be even better next year. –Coach Gill

    West High’s Welding Students + Eagle Scout = Awesome

    WHS-Sunflower-225x300Giant black-eyed Susans blossomed at Davenport’s Sunderbruch Park with the help of Davenport West High School’s welding students and a prospective Eagle Scout.  The students fabricated and painted the flowers over several months. Leading to the park’s hiking trails, they were installed last week.  Thomas Schreiner, the prospective Eagle Scout and a welding student, said class members each put in about 30 hours into the six giant bouquets. Each piece has three flowers and stands about 7 feet tall.  The idea came from black-eyed Susans that stand at the Family Museum in Bettendorf.
