I haven't heard any verification on a hire, but if true I think Ward will be inheriting a better than normal group of kids at SWHS. They have had two consecutive real competitive group of freshmen enter. So, they will be Sophs & Juniors this year. Could be a real contender in a couple of years. I for one welcome a strong SW program. They've always had competitive youth programs, but for whatever reason don't pan out in high school. Lack of consistency in coaching could be one reason, so if it is Ward I hope it's not a short term deal. I also am pleased to see they are finally 2A. They've had to include Job Corp students in their enrollement figures in the past and not one has ever participated in athletics.
