Welcome to Tiger Athletics!
|Director of Athletics Melanie Horn|
Girls learn much more than physical skills through their participation in athletics. They benefit from the values of discipline, dedication, selflessness, and hard work derived from team participation. The collaborative experience of pursuing and attaining a common goal in athletics is unique, as it is combined with interscholastic competition.
Through this experience, girls are able to develop courage as they take risks, strength while displaying finesse, competitive intensity while exhibiting generosity of spirit, and mental as well as physical endurance. While the focus is to facilitate the development of each girl's athletic potential, the greater hope is to instill motivation to continue lifelong physical activity.
We are proud of our winning tradition. In the past decade, honors have included 11 Prep League Championships, seven California Interscholastic Federation-Southern Section (CIF-SS) Individual Championships, one CIF-SS Team Championship, and one CIF State Quarter Final appearance. Westridge participates in the highly-regarded Prep League of the CIF-SS and fields teams in basketball, cross country, golf, lacrosse, soccer, softball, swimming and diving, tennis, track and field, volleyball, and water polo. Middle and Upper School students also compete in the Interscholastic Equestrian League (IEL), a team club sport.Westridge’s Rokus Athletic Complex and Hoffman Gymnasium are home to Tiger Athletics. Richard N. Frank Athletic Field, complete with digital scoreboards, allows Tiger lacrosse, soccer, and softball teams to host games on regulation fields; Hoffman Gymnasium is home court for basketball and volleyball. Yoga classes take place in a dedicated studio; dance is taught in a spacious dance studio with movement absorbing floors; and athletes benefit from use of the Studenmund Family Weight Training Room, a facility designed specifically for girls.
