FALL BALL - Varsity Purple and Varsity White

FALL BALL - JV Purple & JV White

JV LEAGUE: We will host 2 teams (LWHS JV Purple and JV White) in the Newport JV League with games at Newport High school on Saturdays. Be aware that most of our incoming freshmen will all be “playing up” and competing in this JV league (not a C-team league).

This is the schedule for now.  There WILL likely be some shifts or cancellations due to unpredicted shifts in LWHS Fall Ball sports schedules (aka Volleyball/Dance) that get priority gym access over LWBBA.  We will communicate with those as we know it!


Special Note For Varsity Teams: There are some  conflicts between Tues practices times and Bellevue games.  Bellevue games will take priority.  For example, there may be a Tuesday night where Varsity Purple plays at Bellevue college, and Varsity White has practice as LWHS because they don’t have a game (or vice versa). Coaches will communicate about those with players, and we will update Tuesday info on this website.
