Activity started picking up this past week in the village as preparation began for the notoriously busy month of March. Winter sports wrapped up, with both varsity basketball teams making the state playoffs this year, although both teams lost in the first round. The boys fell 63-58 at A.C. Reynolds and the girls lost 58-40 at Asheville, both on Feb. 21. Some spring sports started up as well this past week.
Boys varsity lacrosse lost their first game of the season at home against Bishop McGinness on Feb. 24 and face their first conference matchup against Mount Tabor on the road on Feb. 28. The varsity baseball team plays their first game of the season against West Stokes at home and the varsity softball team faces North Surry on the road the same day. The girls varsity soccer team faces Davie and boys varsity tennis faces Mount Tabor, both for their first games of the season on Feb. 27 and girls varsity lacrosse plays Mount Tabor for their first game on Feb. 28.
After much work and preparation by the Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) and Titan parents, West’s first ever winter dance was held on Feb. 25 from 7-11 p.m. for freshmen and sophomores. The social was a huge success, with many underclassmen excited about the opportunity to participate in a dance of their own. Hopefully the dance will become a new tradition here at the village.
March is set to be an even busier month for the Titans, with only one early release day on March 15 and the only day off being the last day before spring break, March 31. The ACT exam, which is mandatory for all juniors, will be administered on March 7. Despite the cancellation of the ACT Boot Camp that was going to be held a few weeks ago, juniors were given practice test booklets in their home rooms at the beginning of the third quarter to practice for the exam. This year’s spring musical, “Bye Bye, Birdie,” will also be held on March 23 and 24 at 7 p.m. and March 25 at 2 p.m.. Tickets will be $10 at the door.
There’s a lot to look forward to next month to finish off the third quarter. Whether you go watch a spring sports game or attend the musical, it’s a great time of year to come out and support your fellow Titans.
