Best High School Sports Powerhouse - 2011
Regis Jesuit High School
Boys may be cool, but the girls certainly don't drool at Regis Jesuit High, a private Catholic school in Aurora that separates the two. Led by fifteen-year-old sophomore Missy Franklin — who currently holds the U.S. record in the 200-meter backstroke and is expected to compete for a spot on the 2012 U.S. Olympic team — the gals ended Cherry Creek High's six-year swimming championship streak in 2011. The women's basketball team, meanwhile, was runner-up in the state championship. As for the gentlemen, they took state in golf, tennis and basketball (for the third year in a row, something last accomplished by Manual in '48, '49 and '50). The dudes were also runners-up in hockey, lacrosse and football. Raiders rule.
Wanted to add the Regis Girl's Division Varsity Poms State Chmapionship title to the list of State Championships won this school year.
Yes, Regis has excelled in Sports; but don't forget the other recent awards beyond sports too: Top 3 awards in Mock Trial (2011); WIN Latin-World (2011); WINNING Rookie All-Star award in FIRST Robotics Competition-Denver Regional (2011)
