WSHS 1980s - Extracurricular Activities

Extracurricular activities have always played a very important role in the lives of West Springfield students. Countless pages of the school yearbooks from the 1980s showcase just how involved students were and how dedicated the school was to maintaining a strong set of extracurriculars for students to take part in. Sports was a major component of after school activities, as the student body prided themselves on their athletic achievements (see below). Throughout the entire decade, students immersed themselves in clubs and honor societies based around the classes they took at school. For example, languages such as French and German were popular at West Springfield with dozens of members participating in weekly meetings and events.
