WA Celebrates Sunshine Cup All-Sports Award!


Earlier today, Westminster Academy held a special assembly to celebrate the first-place finish in the Boys Division of the Floyd E. Lay Sunshine Cup All-Sports Award presented by the Florida High School Athletic Association along with the state, regional, and district championships accomplished last year.

WA athletic director, Tony DeMare, presented the award to the boys’ varsity coaches.

“Our student-athletes and coaches at Westminster Academy are motivated to compete at the highest level. Seeing our programs awarded the Sunshine Cup is an embodiment of honoring the Lord and providing a testimony through athletics. This is an esteemed award, and we are humbled to be recognized by the FHSAA with this great honor.” –Tony DeMare

Student-athletes from the Class of 2017, many of whom contributed to this award, have gone on to compete at the next level at the University of Albany, Gardner-Webb, Gordon, Holy Cross, University of Miami, MIT, Northeastern, Rhodes, Stetson, and Yale.

We are looking forward to great seasons this year—Go Lions!

swimmingMany of our top swimmers and divers competed at the 54th annual Woodson Invitational this past Saturday against teams from all across Florida including swimming powerhouse Jacksonville Bolles School and Winter Park High. The highlight of the meet came in the form of double wins for both Jessica Nava and Chase Perry. The seniors beat an impressive field in both the 50 and 100-yard freestyle. Other highlights included freshman Blake Shaw finishing in second place in diving with a new personal best, JoJo Richter making finals in both the 200 IM and the 100 backstroke, and Andy Brantmeyer scoring in the 500 freestyle. Our relay teams consisting of Jessica Nava, JoJo Richter, Maddie Sipowski, and Mia Hibler for the girls and Chase Perry, Trent Shaw, Christian Henderson, Adam Warters, and Noah Sipowski for the boys also scored well and had season-best times. The team will travel to Vero Beach and Melbourne this weekend for two meets and will conclude their regular season next Thursday with Senior Night against Calvary Christian Academy. Way to go Lions!
