Westview shooting for state title in boys basketball Saturday


In 1999 and 2000, Westview won back-to-back state titles in boys basketball. That doesn't seem like it's that long ago, except if you're just in high school.

"I think I was four?," Westview junior Chandler Aspy says. "Somewhere around there but it's definitely been a while so its pretty awesome to get back in this position."

"I think the only thing they would remember is rolling down there as a little kid in the back of the car--in a car seat or something like that," Warriors coach Rob Yoder says with a big smile.

Everyone from Topeka, Emma and all parts around will take the ride down state on Saturday--to see their Westview Warriors play for the 2A State Title for the first time since they won it all 14 years ago.

"A big part that makes it so great is just having the fans that we do to support us at all the games," senior Damon Hershberger says. "Just the atmosphere you get to play in--makes it really special."

"The fan base here is amazing," senior Judah Zickafoose explains. "It's almost like playing in a college while we're in high school--just the amount of support they show every game."

Now the Warriors would like nothing more than cap off that ride by winning the state championship.

"it would be a dream come true honestly," says senior Jordyn Bontrager. "Senior year to go out as a state champ. I never thought I'd be able to say that. It would be unbelievable."

They know it won't be easy that's what makes the possibility so special.

Westview will face Park Tudor around 1pm Saturday in the 2A State Finals in Indianapolis.
