Things are starting to heat up in the village as we get well and truly into the midst of this new school year.
Titan athletics have been doing well overall lately as well; despite the varsity football team having a bye last week, they are locked in and ready to face their first conference opponent of the year in Mount Tabor tomorrow at home.
It’s Toga Night, so come out in your best Roman get up to come and cheer on the team. Stop by the Junior Classical League (JCL) station before the game to get help making a toga if you need one.
With the football team on a bye, the boys varsity soccer team took over last Friday, Sept. 8, to get their turn under the lights. Everyone from the West Wackos, to the band, to the cheerleading and dance teams were there to cheer on the boys, who ended with a 2-2 tie with Asheboro. The team also played Parkland on the road on Sept. 11, a 9-1 victory.
The girls varsity volleyball team took a commanding 3-0 win over Glenn at home on Sept. 5 before falling to Reagan in a tough 3-0 loss at home.
The Drama Department’s fall productions of “Desdemona in the Afterlife” and “The Taming of the Shrew” in October and “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)” in November have been cast, and rehearsals for the plays started this week. Keep your calendars marked for Oct. 13-14 at 7 p.m. for the one acts and Nov. 15-18 at 7 p.m. for the full-length production. Tickets to the shows are $5 at the door.
There are quite a few new clubs this year at West, from an outdoors club to a broadcast journalism club. Don’t be afraid to open yourself up to new experiences and join some clubs that sound interesting to you.
