Welcome to the 2017-2018 Hiram High School athletic season. We are excited to have you joining us as part of our Hornet family.

Hiram High School focuses on academic excellence AND developing citizens who will make a life, a living, and a difference. We believe that our Hiram athletic programs are a positive influence on our students’ growth into responsible community members. As I begin my 12th year as a Hiram Hornet, I challenge you to work with us as we reach our greatest expectations as Hiram Hornets!
Our coaches are some of the most committed I have ever worked with when it comes to developing winning programs and growing students into young adults. They work many long hours over the summer and off-season to develop and implement their plans to build character and positive attitudes within all of our student athletes. These coaches challenge their players to push beyond their perceived limits and to embrace the philosophy of working together that is essential to their success in athletics and most importantly in life. Please join us in this commitment of encouraging high expectations, teamwork, and pride within our school, our community, and our Hiram Hornet athletic programs.

My husband Len, my son James, and my daughter Gracie join me in wishing all of our student athletes, families, and coaches the very best in 2017-2018. We ask that you join us in the support and dedication of all of our programs at Hiram High School as we strive to be the best as Hiram Hornets.
