If you think I'm from West then you are sadly mistaken. I pull for anyone that is playing West. I would never want to be in that group of fan/players/coaches with the horrible sportsmanship and horrible attitudes and it happens no matter what sport is playing.

I'm so glad that West did not make it to the championship and if they had then no doubt Alleghany would have beat them. Their pitcher is the best in the conference and their bats are on fire. The thing with them is you never know which one will be the big hitter on any given night. 1-9 are all dangerous. Hope they go far in the state!

Wilkes67......I guess they never got a chance to beat West again given the fact they played and beat East Wilkes in the championship last night!! Your Lesson is: Never assume your going to make it to the championship and win it every year just because you are West Wilkes and everyone rolls over because your unbeatable.

I guess your coach finally got his loud mouth shut!!!

Congrats to 1A Alleghany for winning the MVAC!

Guess it helps to have your dad calling the pitches for you. Guess we will see if they can do it again

Yes the hawks did drop another game to them because they have a really good pitcher and someone who knows how to call pitches for her. Its hard to beat a team 3 times so we shall see how it goes.

Hawkeye1717, you have a great eye. West does have a great coach and very good players. North has good coaches now. East I have no ideal. Central coach is less than them all. Every coach in conference knows exactly what he is going to do. He is very unorganized. Has a JV team that will not be playing anymore this year, because he dosen’t want to move some girls down to play where they could/should. In return he keeps talent and upper class man on the bench! Go figure. All these parents go buy these accessories to play. And now they won’t be. Why do kids this way?

So sorry wilkes i was merely going by how ive seen east play. Although i didnt see the whole game they looked very subpar and as far as east surry if i remember right those teams were very loaded much like the west teams have been so its easy to coach when the talent is there but not so much when you have very little to work with..like i said most teams do good to have 4 or 5 girls who can play and east has not enjoyed winning seasons in how many years now? But its not just East its Central too and as far as willing coaches i thought the head coach had to be a part of the school system so if there are coaching lows then i dont understand why they dont find coaches who has backgrounds in high school. And west does have great coaches even if they do have talent they are coaching the girls the right way.

Before you come on here and talk about coaching, please have some idea of what you're talking about. I am actually not from the county but I do follow sports in the area. I am sure West Wilkes softball has great coaching as they have had success for years and seem to be competitive regardless of who they lose. I know that softball is a difficult sport to find willing coaches at a lot of schools and people talking about poor coaching is a major reason why. However, for you to say the coach at East Wilkes is a sub par coach is ridiculous. You might want to do some research on the coaches history. His programs have enjoyed success at a level no other program in our part of the state has ever experienced, not even West Wilkes. His East Surry teams won four consecutive state championships, beating west to win a couple of those. Like I said, I have no connection to any of these schools but just happened to see your post and found it crazy you would call one of the most decorated softball coaches in our state a subpar coach. Even if you don't like the way he coaches, I think the results speak for themselves.

I agree with the softball part of braves fan it seems west just reloads each year while the other 3 in the county struggle. But from what ive seen id put west wins it all in the conf. even if they might lose a few games during the year. But i think second place will be taken by someone out of the county..maybe Alleghany. The conf. from what ive seen and heard is kinda weak except for west in this county. It seems either there is a lack of players or poor coaching at the other 3 schools which helps west out The other 3 schools all have maybe 4 or 5 good players and the rest are lacking while west has at least 10 really good players. Plus west has the better coaching although north has good coaching this year..central and east struggle big time with good coaching.. As far as baseball wc might be tops but i would not count out west here again in the end..baseball is harder in some ways to make a call on i believe..talent level wise its a wc and west showdown i think. wc has good coaches for baseball and so does west..but like i said i believe the majority of the talent in the county is at wc and west although north and east has some good players..just not enough which cant be helped.

Sorry Wilkes67 I hadn't heard anything about other seniors from Alleghany. I spoke to a dad from Alleghany and he was the only name mentioned.

Pope is not the only senior at Alleghany. I know they have at least 3.

Brooks is verbally committed to ECU and Koon is verbally committed to NC State. Ortiz from WW signed with NC Central. Vestal from EW is going to play at Guilford.

WC should dominate in baseball. Starmount lost several good players but should still be good. I haven't heard of anyone signing except the Pope kid from Alleghany, I think he is their only senior. Elkin is no competition as well as Ashe.

For baseball I think WC is the favorite but who knows if their talent can play together and make it work on the field. WW and EW will also be competitive. For softball it has to be WW again. They just seem to reload every year.
