The boys varsity lacrosse team took a 9-6 win over Davie at home on March 14 and a 16-5 win on the road against Southern Alamance on March 15, before falling to R.J.

After lots of hard work and preparation, the Titan Drama Department presents their spring musical, “Bye Bye, Birdie,” over the next few days. Opening night is tonight, March 23, at 7 p.m. and tickets will be $10 at the door. If you can’t make it, there will be two other performances, one at 7 p.m. Friday, March 24, and an afternoon show at 2 p.m. on March 25. After the matinee, the department is hosting a 20-year reunion for all current and former drama students of Drama Department director, Renae Hubbard. The event will be catered by Little Richard’s and will be a great way to celebrate the talented theater program at West over the past two decades. Make sure to come out to support this year’s cast of “Bye Bye, Birdie” and drama students, come and enjoy the festivities afterwards.
With only a little while left before spring break, it’s sure to be a fast-paced and exciting last week and a half.
