Athletics

Be Great Today. Be Great Together!

No matter the sport, the success of Hendricken athletes is not measured by championships or trophies, but by teamwork and character.

It’s no secret that Hendricken Athletics is a pedigree of their own. To date, Bishop Hendricken teams have amassed more state championships in boys’ high school sports than any other high school. Period.

But, what you might not know is that this unparalleled success isn’t predicated on ability, training, or facilities. Hendricken Athletics is a family, first and foremost, and success is only possible because of the bonds our teams form over the course of a season, a career, and a lifetime.

Without teamwork, character, and passion, there are no banners.
