Welcome to Parish Athletics
In a short period, our students, coaches, faculty and staff have worked hard to build a cohesive and competitive department. Parish already has established itself as one of the state's top athletic programs with state championships and playoff appearances in a variety of boys and girls sports.
We offer multiple sports with multiple teams at the Upper and Middle Schools and have strong Panthers programs in Upper Elementary as well.
It's an exciting time at Parish. We have a terrific foundation to build upon for future years.
Parish's Athletic Department was recognized once again as the top overall program in TAPPS Class 4A. In evaluating every school’s entire scope of boys and girls varsity programs, Parish was ranked No. 1 in the state for the second time in its six-year TAPPS history.
Every Parish program competing in a TAPPS district qualified for the state playoffs. Highlights for the 2011-12 academic year included Girls Soccer 2nd state championship, Boys Tennis winning back-to-back-to back state championships. Parish now has thirteen state championship banners hanging in Panther Gym since beginning TAPPS competition in 2006.
"This speaks volumes of the excellence each team has within our entire program," Interim Athletic Director Brett McCabe said. "For all 19 of our sports to qualify for state competition or make it into the state playoffs, is a testament to our broad-based philosophy. We have to thank all the many, many people who played significant roles in this accomplishment. This the result of the collaboration of many moving parts."
