His responsibilities include media relations, website maintenance, video broadcast production, game management, statistical services, athletic publications, social media management and serving as the athletics historian.

“Ron is also a leader amongst the SIDs in the conference,” said GSAC Commissioner Mike Daniels. “He is a professional in every sense of the word and has the best interests of the conference’s student-athletes always in mind. He has been very giving of his time for conference events and has played an integral role in the conference website for many years.”

For the sixth year in a row, Westmont Athletics has finished in the top 20 in the NAIA Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup which is administered by the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA). The 11th place finish in the final 2015 standings is the fourth highest in program history. In both 1999 and 2002, the Warriors finished in seventh place. In 1996, the inaugural year of the Directors’ Cup Award, Westmont placed 10th.

The Directors’ Cup seeks to recognize athletic programs which perform well over a variety of sports. Points are awarded based on the best finishes at the national championships by an institution’s teams. A limit of six men’s teams and six women’s teams may add to the point total.

Westmont tallied 601, just 1.5 points behind Cal State San Marcos in 10th place and 23.5 points ahead of Lewis-Clark State (Idaho) in 12th place.

A national championship runner-up finish by men’s basketball earned 90 points for the Warriors while the women’s basketball program brought in 83 points as a national championship semifinalist.

Chantel Cappucilli has been named the 11th head coach for Westmont Women's Soccer

Westmont athletic director Dave Odell has announced that Chantel Cappuccilli will take over as the head coach of Westmont women’s soccer. Cappuccilli, who has served as an assistant coach under Kristi Kiely for the past two seasons, becomes the program’s 11th coach in what will be it is 34th season. Kiely announced her resignation last month in order to take an assistant coach position at the University of Arkansas.

“We had a very large applicant pool as our program is considered a top tier opportunity for many,” said Odell. “In the process of considering other applicants, I became more and more certain that the right choice for Westmont was right under our noses.”

“Truly, I am speechless,” said Cappuccilli. “I abound in thankfulness and could not be more excited to lead the women’s program. Thank you to our athletic director, Dave Odell, and Westmont faculty and staff who were a part of the selection process. Also, thank you to Kristi Kiely for showing me what it means to be a woman of faith, integrity and grace while leading a group of women on and off the soccer field.”

Cappuccilli attended Saint Mary’s (Calif.) where she played NCAA Division I soccer for two seasons. After her sophomore year, Cappuccilli transferred to California Baptist. Sidelined with an injury for the 2010 season, Cappuccilli finished out her career at California Baptist in the 2011 and 2012 seasons. Cappuccilli holds a master’s degree in kinesiology and sports management from California Baptist.

Westmont Finishes Second in GSAC Standings

April 25th, 2015
Alika McGuire slides into second.

On the final day of the regular season, #11 Westmont Baseball (37-13, 31-11) split a doubleheader with #19 Concordia (40-14, 29-13), capturing two games out of the three-game series. Westmont won the first game 2-0 behind a complete game effort by sophomore Daniel Butler (9-0) before dropping the second game 4-3.

Butler gave up just three hits while facing 31 batters over nine innings, striking out two and walking one. Butler has recorded a win in each of his last eight starts and has thrown complete games in his last three outings.

Offensively, the Warriors scored a single run in the third and fourth innings. With one away in the third, Michael Stefanic was hit by a pitch and then advanced to second when Alex Bush singled through the right side. A single by Will Barring drove in Stefanic.

A one-out single by Rudy Leon in the fourth inning gave the Warriors a base runner. Ryan Crowe doubled down the right field line resulting in two runners in scoring position. After Stefanic grounded out to third, Bush was intentionally walked. That brought up Barring who was unintentionally walked, giving the senior center fielder his second RBI of the game.

The second game saw Concordia take a 2-0 lead in the top of the fourth inning. With two outs and runners at second and third, John Bornhop singled to center to drive in both runners.

Before Westmont recorded an out in their half of the fourth, the Warriors had both runs back. They would add one more before the inning was over.
