To help ensure we are supporting the development of the whole person, we must actively support our students physically, spiritually, and emotionally. #GOWOLVES

Arynn Herrera on the Top 50 List!

Junior Defensive Specialist (DS) Arynn Herrera, reigning 2A South 1st Team All-Region & Defensive Player of the Year, has been named one of the area's Top 50 returning volleyball players after her amazing sophomore season! In 2021, Arynn led the team in sets played (62), digs per set (4.2), and serves received per match (18.2). With numbers like those, it's no wonder why Arynn will be a focal point for the Wolves' defense this year. The Ladies Wolves begin regular season play this Monday as they travel to Desert Christian to face against a very good Eagles team. The Wolves will be right back at it on Wednesday for their home opener against Santa Rita.

Fall 2022 "Meet the Team Night!"

Dear parents and athletes,

On Thursday, August 18th, starting at 6pm, the St. Augustine CHS athletic department will be hosting the fall sports season "Meet the Team Night!" This meeting is a requirement for all athletes participating in a fall sport as well as their parents/guardians. This will be a two-part meeting with our athletic director, Mr. Witherspoon. He will kick things off by covering athletics from the administrative side, explaining the most important policies and procedures. He will also be able to answer any questions you may have. In the second portion of our session, coaches, athletes, and parents will break out and meet as a sports team to cover team specific rules, expectations, goals, etc. We encourage everyone to attend as this may be the best opportunity to get your questions answered, meet our coaches, and get involved!

Athletes of the Fall Sports Season!

It is with great pleasure to announce the Fall Athletes of the Season! We here at St. Augustine understands that it is important to highlight the positive attributes of our students and one way to achieve such a goal is to spotlight athletic achievement both on and off the field or court of play. This past fall season we had several student-athletes worthy of the awards, but it was quite evident who the winners would be. We want to congratulate Lily Duran (female), and Cristian Vazquez and Alejandro Baltier (co-male) for winning the Athletes of the '21 Fall Sports Season. They will be announced and celebrated during our next pep rally on Friday, January 14th!
