Athletics

Cultivating a winning heart with our vibrant athletics program

Yes, we're proud of the achievements of our athletes at Duchesne—basketball players, runners, soccer players, and more—some of whom go on to compete at the collegiate level. We're equally proud of the achievements we see daily in PE or at practice: the humility, loyalty, and stick-to-itiveness that all Duchesne girls develop on the playing field and the healthy competition that challenges each student to do her best, again and again.

At our last game, I had a moment where I was looking around at my team and just thinking, Wow, I'm really not alone here. It made me want to play as hard as I could, and it made me so proud to be able to play with my teammates.
