About Westie Blue
Westie Blue is founded by Mike Madera. Mike has covered West Haven sporting events and others state wide for over two decades as a professional sportswriter for the New Haven Register, Milford Citizen, West Haven News and Elm City Newspapers.

Westie Blue is a site designed to cover West Haven athletics. This site will provide game stories, features, photos, videos and much more.

Westie Blue will focus on covering sporting events from youth leagues to high school sporting events and follow these athletes through college and adult leagues. Westie Blue will provide high quality service and aims to be your website of choice for all West Haven sports.

Mike has also done broadcasting work, covering West Haven sports, along with other schools state wide, on www.sportingnewsct.com with Don Boyle and 960 WELI with “The Coach” George DeMaio.

Mike again did color commentary for high school football alongside “The Coach” in 2011. West Haven football’s opening contest of the year against Amity, along with others was heard on 960 WELI and a rebroadcast can be heard at www.960weli.com.

With the only individual high school website of its kind providing this much youth, high school and collegiate information in the state of Connecticut, Mike is prepared to making Westie Blue the best youth and high school site around.

Any information, photos and game information you may have can be emailed to Mike at any time. With your help, the potential of this site is limitless.  

Please feel free to contact Mike at any time at MikeWestieBlue@aol.com.

As you look through the site, you will notice pages designed for “Future Westies”, including Pop Warner Football, youth soccer, youth hockey, Biddy Basketball, Little League and much more.

Each high school team has its own coverage with music assigned to each team. The information includes game stories, features, photos and videos

There is a section called “A Minute With” which allows you to get to know players, coaches and alumni on a personal level. Coaches also have their own page where you can place a name with the sport coached and also get to know the coach a little better.

Another section will honor West Haven’s championship teams. Past articles and photos will be included to help remember the glorious times of these teams. Anyone with information, articles or photos of past teams can forward that information to Westie Blue and that information will be included in the section.

A “News and Notes” section will help in showing off West Haven’s best. Whether it is an individual award or a group award, those athletes will be recognized.

The “Leaders” section will have the leaders in their various sports with their updated statistics. Individual and team statistics are filed on the “Statistics” page and will be kept up to date.

Westie Blue will also honor a “Player of the Week” each week. That player will have his or her picture on the website with their statistics and more.

“Hall of Fame" inductees will be honored and the “Alumni” section, including “Where Are They Now” will help recognize past athletes. We encourage all former players to contact Westie Blue and let us know where you are playing or what you are doing to allow others to follow your progress.

Westie Blue is for you, the athletes, the parents, the coaches, general public and everyone in between.

Your help is welcomed and appreciated. Youth leagues can send daily write-ups and photos. We will do the editing and post daily.

Wesie Blue will work with the high school coaches on any conflicting games. Our goal is to give everyone fair and equal coverage of every contest played.

If you are at these high school events, freshmen, junior varsity or varsity and want to send information and photos, please feel free to do so. All of your help will be welcomed.

This site is about the student-athletes. Westie Blue will do everything possible to have coverage of every contest to give each athlete his or her due recognition.

Westie Blue would also like to thank all who have helped in creating this site and making all this possible. Annmarie and Gene Pacapelli, for all their hard work with everything.
