“The glory of sport comes from dedication, determination and desire. Achieving success and personal glory in athletics has less to do with wins and losses than it does with learning how to prepare yourself so that at the end of the day, whether on the track or in the office, you know that there was nothing more you could have done to reach your ultimate goal. “

Student Eligibility for Interscholastic Athletics
A student is invited to tryout/practice for a team sport as long as her most recent grades reflect a 70% cumulative average for all classes and she is not failing more than one class. A student’s most recent grades determine eligibility to play in her chosen sport. For a student to actually play, her grades must reflect a 70% cumulative average for all classes, and she cannot be failing more than one class. She will not be able to practice or play in any games until her class/classes are at passing (70%) with a written note from that teacher to the coach and athletic director. Grades will be checked every other week by the coach. Maintaining eligibility for participation in athletics is contingent upon a student athlete’s academic performance and behavior in the classroom. Failure to maintain the established standards can result in elimination from a team or the athletic program as a whole, which is determined at the discretion of the Athletic Director.
