For the first time in program history, the West Fargo Packers softball team will not be calling Elwood Park home. During more than 20 years of playing home games at Elmwood, the Packers went on a streak of 20 consecutive Class A state softball championships from 1998-2017. Both the Packers and their head softball coach Pat Johnson have a longstanding history with their soon-to-be former home.
Only a few years removed from high school, first-year head coach Jordan Rheault hopes to sustain success with the West Fargo Patriots American Legion baseball team for years to come. The West Fargo High School graduate was hired after Chris Coste stepped down following one year as the Patriots head coach to be an assistant coach for the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks. Rheault won a state championship with the Packers and legion title with the Patriots in 2012.
