Student Athletic Leadership Team

Is a student run club that promotes good character, respect, and sportsmanship on/off the playing area.

One of our goals is to increase school spirit and support for our various teams here at WHS. To do this, we will organize school-wide events such as student fan of the year, athletics day, and through creating student sections at home games.  As a newly built school, spirit and pride in being a jaguar is not the most abundant quality amongst student athletes. However, SALT is a “team” that promotes these coveted attributes and brings the school together at the same time.
