The West Elk Patriots were just one game away from going above .500 in 2020, something that the team will look to improve upon this year.
The Patriots, led by head coach Chris Haag, made the playoffs following an exciting 54-50 win over Yates Center, but were defeated by eventual state semi-finalist Madison in the first round. Haag said like always, success starts up front.
A tough league schedule awaits the Patriots, playing teams such as Sedan and Oswego that have had success in recent years. Haag said you can't ignore those games, but the team must pay attention to what is in front of it first.
West Elk begin its 2021 season against Udall. The Patriots will make two appearances on our Game of the Week schedule, September 24th against Sedan and October 22nd against Yates Center. Both those games can be heard on 690AM, KGGF.
