Mustang Motto: Good People, Good Students, Good Athletes

Community Service - Student-athletes are often role models for other students and younger children and are definitely representatives of Western Wyoming Community College. All teams are very involved in community service projects. Every team also helps out in the concession stand and shags balls at Mustang athlete events when their team is not competing. 

We believe that community service is educationally and personally fulfilling for the athletes and for those they are helping.  We enjoy the visibility for teams, the department and the institution. 

Please contact Dr. Lu Sweet, Athletic Director at lsweet@westernwyoming.edu or 307-382-1740 for more information.

In the Classroom - Student-Athletes are expected to strive to earn a 3.0+ grade point average each semester,individually. Teams are also expected to earn a 3.0+ collectively as a unit, and further, it is the expectation and goal of the Western Wyoming Community College Athletic Department that the entire department with all student-athletes together, collectively earn a 3.0+.

All athletes have required study hours they must meet each week, and whether they are travelling to competitions or not, their academic responsibilities are a priority. 

We believe that this is imperative for success beyond Western. With this kind of a GPA, and attention to academics, when student-athletes leave Western, they are putting themselves in the best situations they can, whether they continue on to a four-year institution, or enter the workforce.

Athletes Moving On - Many athletes have a goal to compete at the four-year level, after they leave Western. We will assist them in any ways we can, by helping them contact four-year coaches and programs. 

If individual athletes have questions about playing on, they contact their individual coaches as well as Art Castillo, Student Athlete Academic Coordinator or Lu Sweet, Athletic Director, regarding specific academic requirements needed to compete at the NAIA or NCAA levels.
