Participation in athletics provides students an opportunity to gain recognition for themselves and for their school. Even more important, students who are active in athletics learn teamwork, discipline, punctuality,respect for others, and good sportsmanship. They develop strong bodies and often develop friendships that last a lifetime. The skills and knowledge acquired from participation in athletics can form the basis for the lifelong enjoyment of sports both as participants and as spectators. Contact Athletic Director Rich Imbriani in room B-24 for more information.
