Congratulations to our US student-athletes who received All-FAA, All-New England, All-Western New England and All-Star recognition throughout the 2017-18 Athletics Season in Fall, Winter, and Spring Sports at King.
King High School Athletics offers a diverse, competitive program designed as an essential component of each student’s overall educational experience. The range of offerings provides students with the opportunity to compete on a variety of high school Varsity and JV and Middle School teams. King strives to instill a true sense of sportsmanship in each student athlete, and to prepare teams and individuals to perform at their very best. Learn how Micah Hauben, Dean of Athletics, describes the impact and exciting future of the King Athletic program.
Since 2007, King has captured 23 FAA League Championships, 14 FAA Tournament Championships, 14 NEPSAC Championships, and 8 awards for sportsmanship. While winning at King is paramount, our students understand that winning only has value when coupled with respect for our opponents.
Being an athlete at King means being a member of a team, committing oneself to a common goal, and giving 100%. King athletes are not only representatives of their teams, but also of the School. Our athletes embody the positive attributes of teamwork, sportsmanship, respect, commitment, self-discipline, and loyalty.
At King, excellence occurs in a community context. On Prize Day and at Commencement, we called out individuals' names as embodiments of excellence, but the fact is that no one can achieve anything alone. "Teachers, classmates' comments or debates in class or in study groups or teams, great assignments, careful coaching - this is what supports excellence.
