October 10th

Westward spike

IOWA CITY– Conventional wisdom suggested Tuesday night’s battle between West High and crosstown rival City High would be an epic confrontation, likely to go to five games. With West up 20-9 and ahead 2-0 in the third match, conventional wisdom was seen slipping out the side door. The Women of Troy went on to take the third set, keeping The Spike, the traveling trophy the teams fight for each year. West has had it 17 times to City’s 14 and won it last year as well.

A blowout for The Boot

IOWA CITY– The West High varsity football juggernaut continued on its winning way Friday night, rolling over rival City High 44-0 in the annual Battle for The Boot.
The win returned the bronzed boot traveling trophy to the Trojan’s trophy case for the first time in eight years. The significance of a perfect 7-0 (4-0 in the MVC Mississippi Division) record, defeating their rival and bringing home The Boot was not lost on the players, coaches or fans.
“It’s hard for me to even put into words,” said coach Brian Sauser, a man rarely at a loss for words.
