“I think the guys were really fired up to go out and put an exclamation point on our time out here at the old field,” said Coach Ben Buursma about the field where WMC played seven different state championship seasons (88, 95, 03, 04, 07, 10, 19). “We’re continuing to work on speed of play and seeing some really good results the past few games.”
