Princeville, Ill. -- Princeville High School is very proud to announce that we have renamed the Princeville Girls Holiday tournament to “Lee Westerman Princeville Girls Holiday Tournament” after longtime teacher, coach, and athletic director Lee Westerman. Lee taught and coached at Princeville High School for 31 years and eventually became athletic director, a position he held for 23 years. Lee passed away last November and is survived by his family and numerous people he inspired while at Princeville, as well as a legacy that will outlive us all.
He was active in the Illinois Athletic Directors' Association, serving as publicity director for five years and hospitality chair numerous times at state and national conventions. He also served as the Retired Athletic Directors' Liaison. He was named the Class A Illinois Athletic Director of the Year in 1995, as well as the National Coaches Athletic Director of the Year. In 2002, his years of dedication to high school athletics were recognized, and he was voted into the Illinois Athletic Directors' Hall of Fame.
