Warrior Watch

Doug Kolesar

Doug Kolesar, Staff Writer

Hello, my name is Douglas Kolesar and I am a senior student-athlete. I run cross country, play basketball and baseball here at West Branch. I led the Progressland in 3-pointers in AA as a Junior. I also had the highest batting average on the baseball team as a sophomore. I plan on going to college for a bachelor's degree in criminology.
