Westmont Track / Thorrington Field

Completed in March of 2010, Westmont Track and Thorrington Field are the home of half of the Warrior’s athletic teams. Thorrington Field serves as the home venue for Westmont Men’s and Women’s Soccer, providing a state-of-the-art grass surface for two of the most storied programs in NAIA history.

Westmont’s men’s and women’s track and field teams and cross country teams benefit from the eight-lane all-weather track, two throwing cages, two shot-put rings, two jump runways, a pole vault pit and a high jump pit. The facility also boasts a fully automatic timing system.

Both soccer and track and field benefit from the large Daktronics digitial display board which posts scores and results. Fans enjoy the unique tiered spectator seating with wide grassy areas or can find a more lofty perspective from the deck of the Westmont Observatory.

Murchison Gymnasium

Murchison Gymnasium has been the home for Warriors basketball and volleyball since it opened on January 4, 1969. The gym is part of an athletic complex that includes athletic offices, locker rooms, fitness center, athletic training facilities, and a pool.

The facility is named after Hugh R. Murchison, a former member of the Board of Trustees and a benefactor and friend of the school. The gym seats 1,600 for basketball and volleyball, and 2,400 for chapel, musical presentations and convocations.

The gymnasium was renovated in the summer of 2008 with a new floor, new bleachers, new paint and a new sound system. The result is a brighter, more fan friendly arena which servers our athletes coaches and fans.

Lynn Abbott Tennis Courts
Abbott Tennis Courts  

Westmont’s tennis facility and location is one of the most beautiful of its kind. The eight championship courts are nestled among sycamore and eucalyptus trees, coupled with spectacular views of Santa Barbara’s mountains.

The original facility was updated and additional courts were added in 1977, thanks to a generous donation by Mr. Lynn Abbott. Since that time the area has been nicely landscaped with lawns and flowers, along with picnic tables and benches that combine to make an ideal setting for tennis.

The quality of the facility and Westmont’s beautiful location draw opponents from around the country. In recent years, teams have visited from Colorado, Hawaii, Illinois, New York, Ohio, Oregon and Washington.

Lynn Abbott passed away in 2000. The Westmont tennis program is indebted to his kindness and generosity.

Westmont Pool

The Westmont pool is located directly behind Murchison Gymnasium. The pool serves as variety of purposes, included being used for swimming classes, rehabilitation, training, and recreation. In addition, Westmont students have formed swimming and water polo clubs which use the facility.

In the summer months, the pool is used for recreation by hundreds of kids who attend summer camps on Westmont’s campus. Pool memberships are available to Westmont faculty and staff, as well as residence of the surrounding community. Smaller pools for young children are also available in the summer.

The pool has immediate acces to locker rooms and shower facilities.
