Athletics helps students act in good faith and intentions and teaches all to live with integrity and loyalty. Sportsmanship emphasized and respect for others is a priority. Academic achievement is prioritized and educational pursuit is encouraged. They will demonstrate respect for others including teammates, opponents, officials and spectators and hold accountability for their self-control in victory and defeat. They will understand that student comes before athlete at any given time and they will not take that for granted. Academics will always be the main focus in any athletic program. They will play for the name on the front of the jersey and not the back. They will understand that sport is a privilege and not something given to them. Providing an equal opportunity for all will benefit everyone who works hard no matter the color of their skin, their gender, their disability or their background. It is the goal of the athletic department to service and direct student-athletes along a path of their educational and athletic participation. Success is doing the best you can, where you’re at, with what you’ve got. To become better each and everyday.
