Westminster’s 10 Athletic Pillars are the foundation of the department and portray what we strive to accomplish through athletics. These key principles are used to guide every decision made by coaches and students alike.

Honor Jesus Christ in all things; He is the most important measure of our success.

Christian character defines who we are; God-honoring behavior, good sportsmanship, and abstaining from drugs, alcohol, and tobacco is required.

Good grades and conduct lead the way; successful athletes must be successful students.

“We before me.” What is best for the team always comes first.

We will run the race to win; competing at the highest possible level is the goal.

We are in this together; student athletes, coaches, and parents are all on the same page.

Commitments are paramount;  showing up and honoring your word is the norm.

We will grow and improve in and out of season; getting better demands hard work.

Supporting other players and teams is expected; we all share Wildcat pride.

Positive attitudes will influence outcomes; passion, enthusiasm, and energy will drive us.

Thinking about playing a fall sport? From football to cross country, we want to hear our Wildcats roar this fall!

If your student plans to try out for a fall sport, note that he/she will not be allowed to do so unless he/she has had a physical on or after February 1, 2018, and has completed the MSHSAA pre-participation physical evaluation form. On the last page of that form, student athletes and their parents must also acknowledge by signature that they have received the Concussion Packet, as required by MSHSAA. This form must be completed and on file in the nurse’s office no later than Wednesday, August 1. Contact Sue Haverstick with questions.
