WPHS Sports

One of the Premiere High School Athletic Programs in Florida

A Rich Tradition of Greatness

Established officially in 1923, Winter Park High School has a long standing history of athletic excellence. From state titles to conference championships, Winter Park has forever been a leader in the state of Florida in regards to athletic prowess. The first ever individual state title was secured in 1924-25 in diving and in 1938-1939 the first team state title was won in swimming. Since then, the Winter Park athletic program has amassed a total of 222 individual state championships,113 team titles and six academic state titles. In 1997-1998, the FHSAA established the Frank Lay All Sports Award for the top overall athletic program in the state of Florida. Winter Park has won the award ten times in the nineteen year history of the award including back to back in the 2008-2009 and 2009-2010 school years.

In addition to state wide excellence, Winter Park athletics prides itself on achieving success in the Central Florida area as well. Central Florida has long been measured by success in the Metro Conference. Winter Park has won 31 Bob Berry Metro Conference All Sports Awards since the mid 1960’s. In 1999, the Orlando Sentinel introduced the Varsity Cup which is awarded to the top overall athletic program in Central Florida. Winter Park has won this award eleven times which includes five years in a row from 2006 to 2010 and as the reigning champion. Even more amazing is that in the seventeen years of existence, the Wildcats have been champion or runner-up sixteen times.
