Varsity Basketball 2018-2019
The goal of the Westover Basketball program is to be among the top competitors in the leagues in which we play and to make a show in the New England tournament. As a team, the Wildcats focus on the fundamentals of basketball, employ aggressive defense and expect a high level of commitment and discipline to achieve its goals. Competing in the NEPSAC league, Westover has been a strong competitor and will look to continue improve upon their record in the 2018-19 season.
The Wildcats will be led by first year head coach Jessica Richardson, a graduate from New Milford High and Western Connecticut, and assisted by our own Abby Woodworth.
