Basketball is a favorite among Webb students, with the whole school gathering in the evenings in the loud Les Perry Gymnasium to cheer on the Gauls. In 2020, VWS basketball captured its second consecutive league championship. WSC basketball celebrated league championships in 2015 and 2016.
Coach Veronnica Alvarado attended Trinity Christian College and Arizona Western on softball scholarships. She received her bachelor’s degree in sports management from Liberty University. She also attended Southern California University of Health Science for medical school prerequisites.
Along with being a paramedic and working 911 emergency medicine, she has been coaching high school basketball since 2010.
Alvarado said the best part about coaching at Webb is “getting to know players off the court and be supportive in their athletic and social endeavors.”
Coach Dunford has been coaching sports for 20 years. He played baseball, basketball and football in high school as well as football at Western Washington University. He earned a B.A. in English literature from Western Washington University and an MBA from the University of Redlands.
As a coach, Dunford understands that skill levels vary from player to player. He groups players based upon skills, then works with them accordingly. His philosophy to develop a skill is through repetition as well as providing positive encouragement. He teaches life lessons on the court through athletics.
