The DUX lost to Wyoming Park 4-3. A late rally in the bottom of the seventh had the tying run on third base, but the DUX could not score. Logan Thimm pitched a wonderful complete game, but the DUX defense was not sharp and did not preserve the victory. “We have been in so many games and competed well this season, but we continue to beat ourselves defensively and this was the case tonight” said coach VanHuis said. The DUX host Unity on Friday.

Dux News · ImPACT Testing


Starting next school year East and West high schools will be running a concussion software program called ImPACT.  What does this mean for you? The Athletic Trainers will need to test your student prior to their season.  At West I will start baseline testing after July 9th, 2012.  I will be testing all West athletes, incoming Freshmen through Seniors.  I will be working with the technology department and coaches to setup times and I will post those once I have them available.  The whole test takes about 45 minutes from start to finish, the actually testing portion only takes 15-20 minutes.

Update: I am not going to need permission forms.  This is a mandatory test for all athletes (contact or non-contact sports).  If you have questions about this test please call me or email me.
