West Football Spring Game Preview & West Baseball Award Winners
Spring football wraps up for West Wednesday.
The Warriors look to return to the playoffs after making it to the area round last November. Four starters on offense, four starters on defense return from last year’s bi-district champions. I asked Warrior football head coach Courtney Boyce the main things he liked seeing from his team this spring. “I’ve seen a lot of great competitiveness, guys going out there learning. A lot of players getting reps. It’s been good overall competition. That’s really what we wanted to see.”
West football’s spring intrasquad game comes up Wednesday night at 6:00 at Memorial Stadium.
