Hornets Athletics

We are proud of our athletes! They teach us about teamwork, commitment and grit—character traits that last a lot longer than a ribbon or medal, although, our athletes have won lots of those too.

Athletics fits well into our vision to develop the heart, soul, mind and strength of each student. The goal of our Hornet’s Athletics program is to provide opportunity for students to compete and serve, while discovering their God-given gifts through athletics.

Our focus is on the discipline of training strong, healthy bodies, working hard and working together. Plus, athletics builds our community in a special way. Everyone can be involved. Students can play on a team, be a referee, a scorekeeper, or a cheering fan. It’s another way we ensure that every student thrives.

Hornet’s Athletics Motto:

Train Hard. Work Together. Compete with Integrity. Glorify God.

Hornets Basketball is played in Middle and High School. Our senior boys team has competed in the Provincials for the past two years and has been called the “ultimate team” for their work ethic and the way they play as a unified unit.

Triple Ball is a modified game of volleyball that provides three times the opportunities to generate rallies and is played by Middle School students. Volleyball, for both girls and boys, is played in High School.
