WCCTV Takes A Look At What Makes The WCC Unique

April 7, 2009

When the West Coast Conference first got its start back in 1952, the founders really had only one goal in mind...to create a convenient way for five Bay Area schools to play basketball. Now, 57 years later, the WCC is a marvelously cohesive athletics league, which is competitive at the national level in 13 sports. In its 30th year under the current eight-team alignment, the WCC has been a model of consistency and stability in the ever-changing landscape of collegiate athletics.

The WCC's eight member institutions - Gonzaga, Loyola Marymount, Pepperdine, Portland, Saint Mary's, San Diego, San Francisco, and Santa Clara - are brought together by core values that extend beyond the athletic competition field. An unwavering commitment to academics, faith, and making a positive impact on the world through the education of tomorrow's leaders are just a few of the principles that have united the WCC within, while also distinguishing it among its peer conferences.

WCCTV takes a first hand look at what makes the WCC so unique.
