We are very proud of our student athletes and welcome all of our students to participate and become proud Trojans. Athletic eligibility starts the first day of your freshman year. At this point the athlete has eight consecutive semes- ters in which to participate. As the athlete enters their 9th grade year they are required to have a 2.0 GPA and pass a sport physical. The athletes must maintain a 2.0 GPA throughout the course of the season to remain on the team, Grade checks are done at the quarters and if a stu- dent/athlete is ineligible he/she is removed from the team. The sports physical lasts for one school year and must be re- done every year the student/athlete participates. With over 60 percent of our students participating in at least one sport during the year, one can easily see our ath- letes enjoy our sports program and consider it a positive part of our school.
