Boys’ Basketball

With the loss of Seniors such as Michael Patina (‘17) and Matthew Pinson (‘17) last year, the Dragons will be looking for young players such as Casey Pridgen (‘20) and experienced seniors like Daniel Opstelten (‘18) to step up and play well against a string of typically challenging opponents.

Girls’ Basketball

The girl’s team had moderate success last year, but struggled sometimes against larger schools.  Captain Caitlin Beaver (‘18) says “This year we will hopefully execute our plays more smoothly and have better success against the larger teams.”

Boys’ Track and Field

After placing third at Indoor States last year, the boys will be looking to redeem themselves and reclaim their rightful place at the top.  Expect big performances from Joe Paul (`18) and Benjamin Widener (‘18).

Girls’ Track and Field

Coming off of their State title last year, the girls’ team looks to continue their domination.  Mary Caroline Heinen (‘20) and Taylor Hill (‘18) should put numbers on the board for both distance and sprinting events and help the Dragons reach victory yet again.


Led by Captains Joe Paul and Ned Cooper (‘18), the team has been training hard in the offseason at the Richmond Police Academy to prepare for a successful season.  “We’ve put in the hours, and I think we can accomplish something great this year” says Cooper.
