Running smooth

The Westlake Recreation Center is in full swing of fall programming. We offer classes for seniors, adults, teens, and kids.

On Saturday, September 12th, the Rec Center conducted the 8th annual NFL/ PEPSI Punt, Pass and Kick competition. A total of 15 kids between the ages of 8-13 tested their skills. As a result, four kids will represent Westlake at the sectional competition at Middleburg Heights on Saturday October 3rd.

Jim Dispirito, the Athletic Coordinator for the Westlake Recreation Center said he was happy about how things turned out. “I was pleased with all the contestants. Everyone showed up on time, went over the rules and instructions with the kids and even for the parents so they knew how things work for the Punt, Pass and Kick, and everything ran smooth. We had a wonderful day for the participants and over the past few years we’ve had representation at the Cleveland Browns Stadium. After seeing this year’s contestants, I feel we’ll have people down there again.” Dispirito concluded. 

We are pleased to announce the winners of the Punt, Pass and Kick competition:

  • Girls ages 8/9: Alex Rujawitz
  • Boys ages 8/9: Brendan Farrell
  • Boys ages 10/11: Logan Whinery
  • Boys ages 12/13: Danny O’Malley

Congratulations to these contestants and good luck in the rest of the competition. Hope to see you at the Cleveland Browns Stadium.
