Women’s Basketball History & Records

The Westmont women’s basketball program was reinstated in 1998 after an 18 year absence. Once the program was started again, it didn’t take long to make an impact. In just its third season, Westmont reached the championship game of the 2001 GSAC Tournament and earned a bid to the NAIA National Championships. Since 2001, the Warriors have returned to the national championship tournement in 2004, 2007, 2008, 2009 and every year since 2011.

In March of 2013, led by NAIA Player of the Year Tugce Canitez, Westmont won five games in six days to claim the national championship. Two years later (2015), Westmont found its way into the semifinals.

Because few records exist from the early days of the program, all the records on this web site are since 1998 unless otherwise noted.
