Spring Sports Previews

As they get ready to start playing games, we preview all Spring Sports.


The Boys Golf team had a quality season last year, showing talent from all ages. Last year, the Sophomores and even Juniors got plenty of experience last year at the varsity level, making them more prepared for this spring season. Even after losing two powerhouse seniors, the team looks to recover with plenty of these veterans and new players coming up to play.

The Golf team lost seniors Chad Briden and Logan Montgomery who were certainly two key players for the team last year.

Jack Bystrom, Junior, comments on losing Montgomery, saying it will certainly set them back for this season.

“Losing Logan and the seniors will definitely bring us back a bit,” said Bystrom. “But this team is doing all that we can in order to pick up where they left off last year.”

Their faith this year relies on Lane Davis, Junior, Tom Isaacs, Senior, Ben Parres, Junior, and Jack Bystrom, Junior. Lane Davis made his way to State last year, and we can definitely plan on seeing him down there again this year. However, after getting injured in the football season, Lane has been recovering all fall and winter from the ACL tear, and he says that he is ready for the competition again.

“Yes, the injury set me back, but I’m more ready right now than I have ever been,” said Laner D. regarding this season and his injury.

The Boys Golf team is ready for this St. Louis weather to clear up so they can get back on the course.

“We ready,” said Davis.

Boys Lacrosse

Boys Lacrosse looks to make a strong run this season. Last season, they made an appearance at the State Tournament for the first time in the Varsity program’s two-year history.

They entered with high expectations, but were unfortunately knocked  out of the tournament in a close game against Parkway South. Graduating only one Senior last season, the Wildcats only have more experience under their belts.

There is a lot to like going into the upcoming season. The new coaching staff, led by Coach Pettis, is returning for a second season, and with eight returning Seniors, the team has great coaching and a solid core to build off of. There has been a lot of preparation put into this season. Going way back to the summer, the lacrosse team held weekly training sessions, and in the winter they played in an indoor box lacrosse league.

This season, they wait to see all this work pay off. Last week, they finally got a good look at the team. The Varsity team recently played in their preseason jamboree at De Smet. They went 2-2, playing solid all-around lacrosse.

There is a lot to improve on, but this roster is full of potential. They open their season off at home on March 15 at 4:30 against Parkway South. The Wildcats look to make a statement win against the Patriots aand avenge last year’s loss.


Boys Volleyball could be on the brink of a breakthrough this year. They have a good mix of experienced club players and players who are simply good athletes. Their club players include Sophomore Evan Harris and Junior Mason Andrasko, who declined an opportunity to play Varsity Basketball this winter in favor of Volleyball. Brothers Colin and Aiden Davitt are both multi-year Varsity players. They also have some new players including Atlin Hall, Isaac Johnston and Maxwell Burns, all of whom are Seniors trying Volleyball for the first time. Jerram Adams and Kyle Dolan are both returning Seniors.

“I feel like we could be good, but I don’t know a lot about the sport or what the competition will be like,” said Johnston.

Led by Head Coach Bryndn Crutcher, the Wildcats hope they can be succesful this season despite a lack of experience, but one thing is for sure: Boys Volleyball will be having fun this season.


Led by Seniors Davis Moore as well as the Coffee twins, Cole and Cam, Boys Tennis could be ready for a breakthrough year. Last year, they lost in the second round of the playoffs to Chaminade after defeating De Smet in the first round. Hopefully, they will make it farther this year. Aside from those three, the Varsity lineup includes Seth Noel, Pierce Dunne, David ragsdale, Josh Jones, Will Vestal, Daniel Stengel, Evan Seabaugh, Griffin Alm, Matthew Kinney, and Caleb Legters.

“I think the maim goal we have as a team is to win our District this year. Playing in a very talented District will make it tough, but I feel like it is definitely something that we can accomplish,” said Pierce Dunne of his hopes for this year’s season.

More than anything, Boys Tennis is a good experience. Playing tennis is a chance to get out to exercise and get better at a sport that people play throughout all stages of their lives. All this being said, Westminster’s Boys Tennis team still remains competitive.

Look for Boys Tennis to have another solid season.

We wish all Spring Sports the best of luck as they begin their seasons.
