2015: Westbrook had an incredible freshman season competing in both the 100m and 200m dashes, as well as the 4x100m relay. At the Pac-12 Championships, Westbrook placed third in the 100m dash with a time of 11.36 (+1.1) and seventh in the 200m dash with a time of 23.58 (+0.7). She also ran the second leg for USC's winning 4x100m relay team which won with a meet-record time of 43.10, third-all time by a Trojan quartet. At the NCAA Semifinals, Westbrook set new PR's in the 100m with a time of 11.17 (+1.8) and had a wind-aided 200m PR of 23.01 (+4.6w). That 100m time moved her to sixth on USC's all-time list. She went on to place fourth in the 100m dash finals with a wind-aided PR of 11.11 (+3.1w), the third-fastest time ever run by a Trojan in the finals. She also earned All-America honors in the 4x100m relay which placed third with a time of 43.27.

She placed second in the 60m at the NCAA Indoor Championships to earn All-America honors with a time of 7.21...she became the first Trojan to score in the event at the Indoor Championships since Virginia Powell in 2006 and had the highest finish by a USC woman since Angela Williams won the title in 2002.
