One of the highlights of the Pleasantville sports season last year was the entrance into the West Central Conference. The Trojans, along with I-35 left the Pride of Iowa Conference for a number of reasons. Travel and looking for more competitive teams. Athletic Director Jeff Cook tells KNIA Sports, they got that and more and hopes the kids realize how much better they must be in the new conference. Many of the West Central Conference schools are in the Des Moines area and are around 60-90 minutes away.
