3 College Freshman

Athletics: Our athletics are not the best however they are pretty good.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: football season is great, you will see all of your fellow cougars at the game!

3 College Junior

Athletics: The football team is somewhat important depending on the year. The basketball team is irrelevant. Our baseball team rocks. Every game is packed except no one attends basketball games.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The school spirit is contagious and hits you once you become a cougar

4 College Junior

Athletics: I'm not into sports too much so the only thing I could say is that the school has a lot of pride in their sports and are very supportive in all of them.
