Westminster Athletics finished the 2016-17 school year ranked ninth nationally in the MaxPreps Cup standings.
The MaxPreps Cup annually honors the top all-around high school sports programs in the nation. Westminster won the award following the 2012-13 school year.
The Wildcats won seven state championships in 2016-17, including boys and girls tennis, girls cross country, boys lacrosse, boys and girls soccer, and girls volleyball. Boys cross country and boys swimming both finished second in their respective state championships.
According to MaxPreps, standings are determined by awarding points for teams that win a state title or finish second. Points are also given depending on the type of sport, the size of state, and the enrollment size of the playoff division. Teams can also earn points for appearing in national rankings.
