Fall is the season for football. The Westside Warriors are on the hunt for a conference championship in the 3-4a conference. We are 3-1 in conference and on the road this week against the Hornets. It is obtainable for the Warriors; all they have to do is win out the rest of the season. They would be co-conference champs for the first time in school history. They would also clinch a home playoff game for the first time. The Warriors will clinch a fourth seed spot in the playoffs if they just win this Friday. But the Warriors want it all--to further their record and make school history.

With the win last year, there is some added pressure this year defending our title. Last year we won district, regionals, and state. The good news is we didn’t lose any starters, so we shouldn’t have any surprises with the other schools. This year we have a new coach, Mrs. Tyner, and we absolutely couldn’t ask for a better coach. Us bowlers are striving to get yet another state title and another ring. I personally believe that we could win district, regional, and also state once again. This would be the first time Westside bowling team would win two state championships consecutively.

The Westside Warriors Football Team had a dominating win against the Manila Lions last Friday with a score of 36-8. The Warriors are on the road this week and are heading to play the Hoxie Mustangs. The Mustangs had an unfortunate loss against the Trumann Wildcats 35-20. The Mustangs lost to the Warriors 40-0 last season. Hootons.com predicts the Warriors to win by 14 points, even though the Warriors have never won any away game against Hoxie. The Mustangs run a spread offense pretty similar to the Manila Lions; we handled these plays pretty well. On the defensive side, they loaded the box to try to shut down our run game, but our offensive line handled the Lion's play. With this, we hope to bring home another win for the Westside Warriors for a record of 2-0.

Last Monday our senior high football team came out and played EPC and Rivercrest for our benefit game. Our team came out first and played Rivercrest and lost by one point. After the game, Westside Warriors took a twenty minute break while EPC and Rivercrest played. Immediately following that game, Westside came back out and played EPC. Westside took the win and and won the game by eight points. The junior high team played EPC at six o clock. The Warriors and EPC were tied up at the end of the game.
