Athletics are an important part of our education program. Participation in a sound athletic program contributes to good sportsmanship, character, physical development, coordination, and a wholesome interest in team and lifetime sports. Interscholastic sports competition exemplifies the value of the democratic process and of fair play. Through participation, the student/athlete learns how to work with others for the achievement of group goals. Participation in interscholastic sports is a living laboratory of equal opportunity in action where all students are treated without favor or prejudice.
