With five coaches, two gymnasiums, and three teams, Westminster offers boys the opportunity to compete at the highest level of New England prep school basketball. With a renewed focus on recruitment and hard work, the Martlets' First Boys' Basketball team has shown steady improvement in recent years and has produced various collegiate athletes at competitive colleges and universities.
Westminster's basketball program goes back to the early days of the school, in which teams established a proud tradition of gritty and determined play, often against taller squads from bigger schools. The Martlets continue that tradition today, practicing hard, competing fiercely, putting in extra work in the weight room, and pushing each other to become the best players they can be. As a small school, Westminster will always compete against bigger schools with Grit and Grace.
The addition of Coach Pringle, a member of the 2004-2005 team, Assistant Coach Williams, and a roster of strong underformers, has raised the energy level for the team and is a testament to Westminster's commitment to strengthening the program. During the 2016-2017 season, the team advanced to the quarter finals of the Class B New England Tournament.
