Whippets Introduce New Head Coach
Brad Breese has been announced as the new head coach of Downingtown West Wrestling.
We first want to thank Coach Cory Sigle for the job he did as coach. We would like to wish him good luck in his new position at Coatesville. I'm sure we'll see him around at the matches.
Coach Breese served as an assistant for 10 years at the school.
