Stellar performances by Westminster Academy’s athletic program in the 2016–2017 school year have led to a 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. State Championships won by Varsity Boys Cross Country, Basketball and Track & Field sealed the lead by an overwhelming margin. Points are awarded to the 707 member high schools based on finishes in the FHSAA State Series competitions.
Westminster Academy held a special assembly to celebrate this athletic achievement on Thursday, September 28.
“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,” said Tony DeMare, Westminster Academy Athletic Director.
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.
