Athletics At Western

About Our Teams

Western has had varsity sports since 1967. Our team colors are black and red, and our teams are called the Cavaliers. The Cavaliers compete against teams from Wisconsin, Minnesota, South Dakota, Iowa and Michigan. Annually, the Cavaliers take part in the NJCAA playoffs, which lead to the NJCAA National Championship tournament. In addition, Western has joined the Minnesota College Athletic Conference (MCAC) in Men's and Women's Basketball. Go to for conference scores, standings and statistics
