The focus of the Middle School boys baseball team is to teach the players how to both play and enjoy the game. The program is built upon teaching the fundamentals of the game and having fun competing. This program has had a tradition of winning seasons since its inauguration. Though playing time is based on players’ ability to play certain positions, coaches seek to give every player the opportunity to earn experience during each game.
The varsity baseball program at WCA started out winning many league championships in the early 2000s. The program sought to play at the next level and entered the Old Line Baseball Conference, playing against strong teams like Avalon and The Heights, and now looks to bring that history and tradition to the PVAC League. The varsity baseball program is built upon honing skills and techniques through hours of practice and a rigorous season schedule. The varsity baseball program plays their home games on a beautiful baseball field with a batting cage. The team has 5 events per week and plays 15-20 games each season.
The softball program is a training ground for young women to learn about fast pitch softball. It is an opportunity for WCA girls to gain experience playing the game at a competitive Middle School level. The athletes learn the fundamentals that help individual play and they are introduced to team play tactics. The team has 5 events per week, plays 11-15 games, and ends the season with a tournament.
The varsity softball program at WCA is the most decorated program at the school in recent years, winning 3 league championships in the last 4 years. The softball program looks to continue that winning tradition as they enter the PVAC League. The program is built upon teaching individual mastery of skills and competing as a complete team. The softball team plays their home games across the street from the WCA campus at Olney Manor Park. The team has 5 events per week and plays around 15 games each season.
The tennis program has always finished near the top of the league in recent history, producing some very talented players. Emphasis is placed on mastery of individual technique and match strategies.

The golf program is relatively new and is showing signs of tremendous growth. In recent years the team has posted a 2nd place finish in the regular season and league championship many times. Practices consist of time at the driving range, on the practice greens, and playing practice rounds each week. The golf program focuses on mastery of individual technique and form, and includes a fall enrichment program that allows players to sharpen their skills before the season begins. The varsity team typically has four events per week and around ten matches each season, including a midseason challenge and a championship tournament.
The coed track program, like cross country, continues to grow each year. We have runners competing in a variety of events, some sprinters and some distance runners. We have runners in individual events as well as relays. There is no throwing component to our track program yet, but with interest it is something we have the ability to add. The team attends a meet once a week during the season and it all culminates with a two-day conference championship meet.
