Athletic opportunities in basketball, softball, volleyball, track and cross-country help students to develop:
- confidence, positive self-esteem and moral character
-the social skills to interact and cooperate effectively with others;
- self-discipline, sound work habits and perseverance;
- an understanding of commitment, responsibility and loyalty;
- an appreciation for health, physical conditioning and lifetime recreation.
