When it comes to athletics, Oakwood usually comes out on top. Oakwood does not have many sports, but students perform above and beyond for the sports that are available. Oakwood has men's and women's basketball teams, as well as intramural soccer, flag football, and volleyball. With its amazing dunk contests and great season games, the Oakwood Ambassadors basketball teams have proven to be outstanding. The school doesn’t have a lot of games, but when there is a game, most of the students come out to show their school spirit.
Oakwood is not a Division 1 school, so sports are not going to be the biggest thing here, but the basketball team gets a lot of attention and recognition nevertheless. The intramural volleyball teams have also shown great performance, and both have won trophies and made Oakwood proud. The flag football team, also known as the Oakwood Spartans, is the newest team, but many student show interest in it. The practice is fun, and it provides the opportunity to play harmless football.
