The Williston Wildcats are going to look a little different as they travel New England this fall to take the field against other members of the New England Prep School Athletic Council (NEPSAC). They’ll be wearing new travel suits that will be the standard for the school’s teams.
“We’re very excited about this change,” said Mark Conroy, Director of Athletics at The Williston Northampton School. “A school’s athletic program is arguably the most public aspect of any institution so we wanted to make sure that our teams looked as sharp and uniform as possible while representing Williston. The Wildcats will play in nearly 800 contests during this coming school year. While we are extremely proud of how well our teams compete and represent the school with great sportsmanship, we felt that adopting these travel suits would go a long way towards improving the school’s identity and recognition by others. I know our teams will look fantastic in these new suits!”
Using the blue and green travel suit will limit the need for individual teams to purchase expensive outerwear on a seasonal or annual basis, although teams will still be allowed to order sport-specific wear. The new travel suits will standardize the school’s “look” while controlling escalating costs for families with students on multiple teams.
Returning students who plan on being associated with a competitive team were sized for the new suits in the spring and will receive them at Registration this fall. All new students will be sized for their travel suits when they arrive at Registration. The suits will be charged to student accounts during the fall trimester.
