With a wide variety of sports offered from grades 6-12, there is a place for every student within Hill Country athletics as the Knights compete at the local, district, regional and state levels in the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools (TAPPS) and the Capital Area Private and Parochial Schools (CAPPS).
While highly competitive and successful, there is no higher priority to the Knights’ coaches than the development of authentic, Christ-like character in our athletes. The character for which Hill Country athletics strives is about commitment to a cause greater than oneself, personal sacrifice, playing through pain, servant leadership, and a mentality tough enough to take on every challenge.
The mission for our athletes at Hill Country is simple: work together for one goal – honor Christ in how you play and win championships. We want to be known in the community for not only success in sports, but in the way in which we achieve that success. We want to build strong athletics programs where players are focused on relationships with one another, with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and on winning. We want to use the tool of athletics to build young men and women who will go into their fields of expertise and change their communities for the better and share the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Hill Country boasts a core of coaches that have been together for over a dozen years, fostering an extremely resilient and consistent environment for athletic success, mentorship, and the development of lifelong relationships.
Participation and development are central to both the philosophy and success of Hill Country athletics. The majority of Upper School students participate in at least one sport, with many taking part in two or more. The exceptional athlete can develop a legacy, be noticed, and move on to the college ranks.
And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. Colossians 3:23
