Last nights game at Bettendorf proved to be a challenge for the West 8th Grade Girls. The A team struggled to get into a rhythm falling to Bettendorf’s Black team 46 to 25. During the B Team game, West had another hard fought battle giving their all. With a final score of 10 to 9 West’s B team earned their first win of the season. Both coaches are very proud of our 8th grade girls. Our next game is at home against North Scott Grey this Thursday.


The 7th grade girls basketball teams played their hearts out but came up short last night in both games vs. Bettendorf. Great defense down to the end of the game by all.  Scoring for West: Rylie Moss 2, Zoey Long 3, Emma Zillig 2, Kyla Fear 3, Alicia Garcia 4

Malia Washington-Cook 6, Cassie Larsen 4, Sophie Emmert 2

If you’re looking for Muskie Baseball apparel we’ve decided to open an online store similar to what we did last year. The online store will be open starting today until November 29th at midnight. We have items ranging from youth sizes to adult, as well as Muskie Baseball hat and stocking cap. There also is a headband for purchase and it will be in purple (picture looks pink).  Keep in mind that there is a $15 flat rate shipping fee to your home but if you don’t want to pay for shipping you can chose to have all items shipped to me (team coordinator). We will set up a date and pick up location most likely at the high school for individuals to pick up their orders. Items will be delivered about 2-3 weeks after store is closed. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
