Interscholastic athletics are an integral part of the educational process of the Westhampton Beach School District. Athletics should be a broadening experience in which mind - body harmony is created by striving for physical and mental excellence. Westhampton Beach's aim is to develop a competitive athletic program without losing sight of educational values such as sportsmanship, health and scholastic attainment. It is the nature of athletic competition to strive for victory. However, the number of victories is only one criterion when determining the success of a season. Guiding the team to achieve its maximum potential is the ultimate goal. To this end, the coaching staff teaches student athletes to prepare their minds and bodies and to be modest in victory and steadfast in defeat.

The Westhampton Beach Hurricanes have a high participation rate in a well-rounded program of individual and team sports. Westhampton Beach offers sports that include varsity, junior varsity and modified programs for students in grades seven through twelve. Our teams and student-athletes have distinguished themselves with winning records and championships in the Section XI, and New York State competitions. Many teams have been recognized for their combined grade-point average through the NYSPHSAA team Scholar-Athlete program.

We wish all our teams a safe and healthy season. Go Canes!

For more information about our athletics, physical education, and health programs please contact Jason Cohen, Athletic Director at (631) 288-3800 ext. 273/219.

Westhampton Beach long-distance runner Trevor Hayes completed his high school running career by placing third place in the 2,300-meter steeplechase championship for Division 1. He garnered sixth place overall in the state with this placement, earning him All-State and All-Federation titles.

This is not Hayes’ first impressive run. He previously took first place in the boys 2,000-meter steeplechase competition at the New York Relays meet at Icahn Stadium with a time of 6:02.3 — a new Westhampton Beach High School record — and earned an All-American title following his performance at the Nike nationals.

Hayes started running in eighth grade after earning an All-County award in tennis as a seventh grader. Since committing to running, Hayes has received multiple All-County, All-League and All-State recognitions in all three seasons of competitive running – cross-country and indoor and outdoor track.

The senior will be moving on to the United States Naval Academy after graduation. The Westhampton Beach School District congratulates Hayes on an impressive high school running career.
