The Portsmouth West boys soccer team played a soccer match in Mapfre Stadium that hosts the Columbus Crew Professional Soccer team. The Senators put up a good challenge against the Waverly Tigers and led the game for awhile. The game ended up being a 2-1 lose but all of the players had a great time getting to play on a professional soccer field. There was a lot of support for the Senators Saturday and we just want to thank everyone for coming out and supporting the team! 




On Tuesday, September 28th, Kayleigh Coleman became the first volleyball player in our school history to have 1,000 career assists. Kayleigh has been a varsity setter since her Freshman year, allowing her to accumulate a large amount of assists. A player is awarded an assist whenever that player sets the ball to a teammate who attacks the ball for a kill. The kill results in the team scoring one point. Congratulations Kayleigh! More coverage can be found at the Portsmouth Daily Times, our local newspaper.
