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.
