Mary is in her 16th season as assistant coach, and her 12th as a faculty member at the Academy. As an undergraduate at Springfield College, Mary was a 4-event school record holder, and 10-time NCAA Division III All-American.
She brings that wealth of knowledge to the deck at the Academy. Instrumental in the development of the dry-land training program and in the sprint group, Mary has developed some of the better swimmers at the Academy.
Westkott also teaches Physical Education in both the cadet and the Leadership Development Center curriculums at the Academy. In the summer of 2005, Mary competed in the Ironman Lake Placid and had the third fastest time in the women’s swimming out of over 500 entrants.
