Athletics Update

July 31, 2015

WELCOME BACK!
This year looks to be another great year athletically for Westminster. Last year was an outstanding year with many accomplishments on and off the field. We had many region championships and state final fours, two team state championships and two individual state championships. What a tremendous foundation for this year’s athletic endeavors!

As you may already know, Westminster fields 16 interscholastic varsity sport teams (38 teams total) including, football, basketball, soccer, tennis, track and field, cross-country, baseball, golf, swimming and cheerleading. It is the goal of our Athletic Department to impact our students and our community for God’s kingdom through the pursuit of excellence in the athletic arena. Our fall sports include varsity and Middle School football, varsity and Middle School cheerleading, varsity and Middle School cross-country, Middle School tennis, and Middle School golf. Our tryout and start date listings are listed on the corresponding webpage.

WILDCAT WAY
We have many athletic opportunities and we encourage all students to participate. This past season, we challenged every student-athlete to live “The Wildcat Way.” The Wildcat Way is a touchstone statement that we hope will describe our athletes as well as challenge them to be the very best they can be on and off the field or court. It states, “We honor Christ first. We expect the best from our teammates because we demand the best from ourselves. We reject complacency and outwork our opponents as we strive for success. We compete with uncompromising character and integrity at all times. We demonstrate an unwavering pursuit of excellence. We live the Wildcat Way.”

PHYSICALS
Athletic physical forms are available online. Please remember that all student-athletes must have one on file in the Athletic office BEFORE they are allowed to practice. Physicals are available through an Urgent Care MD location or GRU Sports Medicine if you are unable to get one through your primary care physician.
