Bursting with Hometown Pride

Our hometown of Sheffield, Iowa, has been bursting with pride since Friday night when the West Fork Warhawks won the Class 2A Boys State Basketball Championship at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines and capped a perfect 27-0 season.  The Warhawks beat Western Christian of Hull, Iowa, in a thrilling 60-56 overtime victory.   West Fork’s Seth Tuttle, who scored 27 points including the game-clinching, free throw with 7 seconds left, was named captain of the All Tournament Team.

“This is everything that I’ve ever wanted. It’s the best way to end it,”  said Tuttle in a Des Moines Register article. “But it’s not about me, it’s about this West Fork team. It’s about West Fork nation.”

West Fork is a new school district that formed last year when the Sheffield, Chapin, Meservey, Thornton school districts combined with Rockwell-Swaledale.  West Fork was chosen as the name because the West Fork River runs through the district.

Congratulations to the State Champion Warhawks! We’re proud to be part of the West Fork Nation and are proud to call Sheffield “home.”
