    West Student Organizes Event to Bash Ovarian Cancer

    Kyle Herrick put together his old car/van and the idea to help raise money for Ovarian Cancer Research.  He sought out the Leo Club and Student Senate to help with the event.  Goggles and mallets were provided to students who had signed waivers.  The cost:  six hits for $5.00 or a dollar a hit.    Kyle, teachers, and students raised $265.00 for the Norma Leah Ovarian Cancer Foundation with donations from individual teachers, service staff, and service staff support groups.  The event was so successful, the foundation is thinking of finding their own car to host similar events. Thanks, Kyle!   TO SEE MORE PICS, CLICK HERE and HERE.

    West’s Wrestling Season Ends with Awards

    The Wrestling team has closed the door on another wrestling season— a long and grueling one. However, in the end, those who worked hard and put the time in were rewarded. In addition to Most Valuable Wrestler, John Behrens took 2nd Team All-Conference and All-Metro Honorable Mention. We ended with 21 wrestlers and will have all but 2 of them back next season. We have 5 home meets next year. The team would love to see you there cheering them on!  When you see these student wrestlers, please congratulate them on their accomplishments.
