Championship-Winning Athletics

Home of the Fighting Gators

The philosophy of our Athletic Department is to develop competitive student-athletes who demonstrate discipline, sportsmanship, respect, & cooperation. Through our championship-winning athletic programs & diverse extracurricular activities, students learn essential leadership & team-building skills.

Learning is not a spectator sport, so let's play!
