In case you missed it Wednesday night, Johnson County Sports posted an entire multimedia package on the aftermath of West High’s athletic success this school year. There are three parts to the story, all of which go hand-in-hand. Check them out.

– The volleyball, girls basketball, and boys basketball teams all won state titles. That success has translated over to other portions of West High, including the overall aura and atmosphere of the school. Boys hoops coach Steve Bergman labeled West a “well balanced school” and also said “it was simply a great year all around.” Click here for that story.

– Junior Ally Disterhoft is a very heralded and decorated prep player. But even she has learned from the entire experience as a whole. Disterhoft, an Iowa commit, also highlighted West’s overall profile as an institutional success story. Click here for an audio interview with Ally.

– Over the last few months, some of West’s students — including the athletes — have taken to social media to share their opinions and jubilation over the emotions of winning a state championship. Using Storify to reveal some of their Tweets, juniors Dondre Alexander and Jeremy Morgan are some of the main highlights from this piece. Click here for it.

As always, thank you to those who’ve read, watched, and listened to content on JCS.
