Athletics

Go Comets!

Our campus has a long history of athletic excellence, emphasizing academic achievement alongside athletic prowess. This is why we call ourselves "The Home of Scholars and Champions."

We are, of course, the home of the most prestigous men's basketball program in California (winning 6 state championships in the past 13 years). But there is much more to Westchester athletics than basketball. In the 2009-10 school year, we also won Los Angeles City Section championships in baseball and volleyball.

 

In addition, our Girls' Sports are on the rise.  Tennis made the playoffs last year and Softball has gone deep in the playoffs the past 2 years.

 

 Westchester is determined to continue this tradition of athletic excellence. With the creation of our Health & Sports Medicine program, we have created opportunities for students to learn medical science and explore the capacity of the human body through participation in athletic activities.
