Downingtown West head coach Jason Ritter has never been one to let himself or his team get ahead of themselves. The Whippets have been under the influence of his “step-by-step” philosophy since he joined the program in 2011.

On the back of their warm-up shirts, for example, are the words, “One More,” signifying each small part of the journey to the lofty goals the Whippets set for themselves.

Some steps are small, some cover a good amount of distance.

And then, you have your leaps.

Leaps like knocking off one of the premier programs in District 1 AAAA, Chester, which Downingtown West did on Wednesday night at the Pete & Jameer Nelson Classic at Widener University, gritting out a statement win, 55-51.
