Westby is looking to make their third consecutive appearance in the playoffs this season. The team lost in the first round last year to Durand.
While the Norsemen have plenty of speed to compete, head coach Dan Nelson says they could use more size.
But lacking size, the team will just try to exploit its strength.
"We're pretty quick and athletic," said senior Ryan Gutenberger. "We're not very big, but we can use our athleticism to our advantage."
Nelson hopes his smaller and speedier players can still compete with a bit more of aggressiveness.
"What I have seen is that we're working hard. But this time of the season, we need to work just a little bit harder and be a little more physical," said Nelson.
"I'm still waiting to see some guys to show up and bring that physicality."
