GREENFIELD — The Nodaway Valley/West Central Valley/Adair-Casey girls soccer team will be the subject of a new KCCI sports segment called “Small Town Spotlight with Scott Reister” on Wednesday’s 10 p.m. newscast.
Reister visited the team’s practice last week and interviewed team members. The story is about how the shared program involves nine towns — Bridgewater, Fontanelle, Greenfield, Adair, Casey, Stuart, Menlo, Redfield and Dexter. The team also includes a player from Adel and one from Earlham.
“This is an honor for our program and well deserved for the girls who make this program work,” said Valley head coach Michael Krawczyk.
