West Des Moines Valley High School hails from West Des Moines, Iowa and the Tigers are the lone team from the state of Iowa in the Nebraska high school lacrosse league. That right there separates them from the pack. They kicked off the season with wins against St Louis Park (MN), Orono (MN), and Madison Regents, out of Wisconsin.
Right now Valley is 8-1, with their lone loss coming at the hands of Nebraska power, Creighton Prep 9-8. Lincoln out of Nebraska is also looking very strong.
But Valley has a little extra motivation… the Pride of Iowa is on the line! Since they play only teams from outside their State borders, they threw the Iowa state flag on the back of their helmets. TOO COOL!
I want one of these stickers badly!
The Iowa flag!
