The Downingtown West Softball season has officially begun! 

With the 2022 season underway, the Lady Whippets are looking to be strong competitors on the field. As reigning Ches-Mont champs, West softball is a team to look out for this season. Returning player Darby Weller (‘23) stated, “Our defense is very strong and we overall have a good lineup from top to bottom, I’m looking forward to a great season.”  The roster this year is stacked with all around great players in all positions, and West softball’s athleticism, determination, and energy will be hard to beat. 

Preparing for a great season, these girls have been working hard on all aspects of the game. With a scrimmage victory against Hamburg High School, and an upcoming scrimmage against Ridley High School, these girls are projected to have an outstanding season. Their first regular season game will be held on March 25, 2022, at Perkiomen Valley High School.

Our staff wishes West softball the best of luck this season! Go West!
