GSAC&Learfield-Cup

In a very close result, Westmont Athletics will hold on to the Golden State Athletic Conference All-Sports Award presented by Duke’s Restaurant in Huntington Beach. The Warriors averaged 6.83 points, edging out Concordia by 0.02 points in the final standings.

“The GSAC all-sports award is especially pleasing because it is our second in a row and for me establishes that we are a well-rounded and consistently solid athletic program,” said Westmont athletic director Dave Odell. “Our aim is to field competitive teams in every sport we’ve chosen to compete and this award demonstrates that we are doing this.

“I am especially pleased that with success on the field, we were also able to achieve strong results in the classroom,” noted Odell. “The fall semester GPA average for student-athletes was higher than any previous semester. Achieving within the academic rigors of Westmont, while being a full-time athlete, is quite a growing experience. I am quite proud of the way our student-athletes approach their business on and off the field.”

An athlete from each intercollegiate team is presented with the Golden Eagle Award. The honor is given to an athlete for their accomplishments athletically, academically, spiritually and socially. Each recipient must be at least a sophomore in academic standing, possess a minimum 3.25 GPA and have the nomination and support of their coach.

Women’s Cross Country 18th at Nationals

NAIA Cross Country Championship

Competing with a wind-chill factor of 15 degrees at the NAIA Women’s Cross Country Championship in Lawrence, Kansas, Westmont Women’s Cross Country finished 18th out of a field of 32 national competitors.

Freshman Kelly Collins was the Warriors’ top-finisher, completing the 5,000 meter course at Rim Rock Farm in a time of 18:59 and finishing 62nd out of 319 finishers.

“Kelly held her own and did not fold under pressure competing as our number one runner and at nationals for the first time,” noted Westmont head coach Russell Smelley. “We had a one minute team spread, the best of the season. We had hoped we would have that level of performance. It was a reasonable performance for our women. Their aspirations were a little higher but they held together well in a large field and on a challenging course. I think the temperature had an effect on their ability to run fast.”
