Another strong start
Iowa City West experienced success the last two years, reaching consecutive state finals under Garrett Hartwig.
The only time the program had a better period was a stretch from 1995-99, winning three state titles in five seasons.
The Trojans have graduated some of their top producers each of the last three seasons, but have been able to reload a winning lineup and avoid the rebuilding process. After another state runner-up finish, seventh-ranked West is 3-1 and hosts Pleasant Valley (1-3) Friday night in the Class 4A District 4 opener at Trojan Field.
