Spring has sprung at the village and the Titans are ready to face it head on.
Spring athletics are a large part of the excitement, and most have already kicked off their seasons. The girls varsity soccer team has gotten off to a 3-0 start, beating Davie 4-1 on Feb. 27, Atkins 3-0 on March 1 and Reagan 4-1 on March 2 to win the Soccer Spectacular Championship. They face Greensboro Page on the road for their next game on March 6.
The girls varsity lacrosse team has also started off the season undefeated, beating Mount Tabor on the road 16-0 on Feb. 28 and Northwest Guilford 10-8 at home on March 1. They face Glenn on the road next on March 7. The girls varsity softball team won their first game 5-3 at home against Elkin on March 1 and will take on Mount Tabor next on the road on March 7. The boys varsity baseball team won its first two games of the season, 7-1 against West Stokes on Feb. 28 and 14-8 against South Iredell on March 1, before falling to Watauga 6-4 on March 4. They also face Mount Tabor on the road next on March 7. The boys varsity lacrosse team took down Mount Tabor 21-10 on Feb. 28 and, like the girls, will face Glenn on the road on March 7 for their next game.
This past week, West announced that they will be holding a staff versus students dodgeball game during fourth period on March 30, the last day before spring break. It is $5 to play or watch, and spots are on a first come first served basis. QR codes are posted all over campus, so be sure to scan them if you want to participate, or just go to cheer on your friends and teachers. It should be a great way to have a little fun and celebrate spring break, the end of the quarter and the start of the last couple of months of the school year.
There are numerous new CTE classes being added to West’s curriculum next year, all of them offered at an honors level, and many students are excited about the new experiences these will offer. The new classes include everything from teaching as a profession to hospitality & tourism to sports medicine to game art design, and should be great additions to the West community to broaden the opportunities available to students.
With so much to be excited about, it’s sure to be a great spring for the Titans.
