As it has every August the past several years, the West Plains Chamber of Commerce’s monthly breakfast on Aug. 21 took up a sports theme with a trip to Eastern Washington University’s red turf at Roos Field.
Guest speakers Athletics Director Lynn Hickey and head football coach Aaron Best outlined what fans, alumni, residents and business leaders can expect as the Eagles take to the fields and courts of athletic competition this fall. For football — the centerpiece of Wednesday’s meeting — that means setting and achieving some high goals.
