The Importance of Athletics
Athletics help each player achieve higher standards of mental, moral, social, and physical fitness. Competition teaches our students how to win and lose with dignity. It is our hope that athletics can provide our students with an arena outside of the classroom in which to develop the confidence and inspiration needed to strive for both individual and team success.
