By promoting physical fitness, as well as discipline and self-esteem, athletics play an important part in helping our students become well-rounded adults. Sportsmanship, commitment and leadership are but a few of the qualities that young people learn through participation in HPSD athletic programs. Hattiesburg Public Schools has been home to many great athletes and championship teams in a variety of sports, including baseball, basketball, track & field, soccer, football, and more recently power lifting and bowling.
Many times our athletes learn things that carry over into their academic life as well in areas such as mathematics, social sciences, and physical sciences. We are very proud of our young men and women athletes, and the dedication they show each and every week. We hope that the things they learn through participating in sports will help carry them throughout the rest of their life, on and off the field.
