Younger, yet talented players make up Simmons’ varsity squad in 2012.
This season, Coach Kyle Simmons and his Bulldogs hope to repeat the success of 2011, when the team romped their way through the regular season and district tournament to win yet another Concorde Title While last year’s senior-dominant team graduated a vast majority of its starters, Simmons is excited to coach a younger team with a goal of making the playoffs. But first the Bulldogs must host South Lakes in the season opener Thursday night. “The motto this year has been “Next man in” and we’ve had t-shirts printed out that I gave to the kids,” said Simmons. “It signifies we had a lot of kids graduate and we need to figure out who the next person is.” A lot of seniors did indeed graduate—40 in fact. Many coaches would panic when faced with a…

Star center takes on leadership role for Westfield basketball team
The Westfield High Bulldogs (12-3, 3-0) have dominated the hardwood this season and are fresh off a win-streak of four in a row and seven out of their last eight games. The team is just one win shy of its 13 victories from the 2010-11 season, with plenty of basketball still left to play. Why the big turn around? Well, senior Zach Elcano is one ‘giant’ reason the Bulldogs seem the team to beat in the Concorde. The 6-feet-11 inches, 245-pound center leads his squad in scoring with an average of 13-points per game. Elcano said he took it upon himself in the off-season to become more physical to help lead the Bulldogs in a shot at bringing home championship banners this year. “We definitely needed someone to step up and be a leader,” said …
