West Coast Conference 17 A tradition of academic and athletic excellence.

The West Coast Conference was formed in 1952 to provide a convenient venue for five San Francisco Bay Area schools to compete in basketball. Since that modest beginning, the Conference has evolved and grown to become a nationally recognized and competitive force in intercollegiate athletics, w ith 13 league-sponsored sports: baseball; both men's and women's basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, and tennis; and women's vol leyball and crew.

The eight wee members span the western coast of the United States, from the pine forests of Eastern Washington, to the Columbia River Basin, to the dynamic San Francisco Bay Area, to the sunny beaches of Southern Californ ia. The Conference is characterized by the stability of its membership - only two conferences have been together longer - and its unique emphasis on combining excellence in athletics with exce llence in academics. The Conference recognizes championships in each of its sports, has hosted NCAA championsh ip events, and produced 33 NCAA individual or team champions. And, many outstanding WCC student-athletes have gone on to excel in professional sports.

The long and rich history of the WCC demonstrates that success in intercollegiate athletics can be built on the foundation of values, character, and academics.
