Holy Cross Knights Athletics
Holy Cross of San Antonio has a tradition of excellence that the athletic program strives to uphold. As Blessed Basile Moreau has said, "We shall always place education side by side with instruction; the mind will not be cultivated at the expense of the heart." At Holy Cross we strive to produce "useful citizens for society". Athletics plays a vital role in a Holy Cross education that seeks to prepare young men and women intellectually, spiritually and physically for life.
A Holy Cross Knight should reflect a selfless attitude that is inspired by a vision of a team first approach. The code that a Holy Cross Knight lives by should be reflected by their priorities; first, a devotion to God and family; second, loyalty to their country and their local and school communities; and finally, a belief that the needs of the team supersedes their own desires.
In the Holy Cross tradition our coaches encourage our student-athletes to be personally demanding and reflect the qualities of academic achievement, hard work and respect. Athletes should understand that success is not necessarily defined by wins and losses, but rather by their character, their attitude, personal responsibility and accountability-to their team, family and coaches-and perseverance in the face of obstacles. It is our belief that if the emphasis is on these qualities, then winning will take care of itself. As coaches we believe in the high school experience in which student-athletes are encouraged to participate in more than one sport.
Holy Cross of San Antonio currently competes in the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools at the Division II or 5A level. Our district opponents include San Antonio Christian School, Texas Military Institute and Providence. Additionally in football our opponents include Corpus Christi John Paul II, Brownsville St. Joseph and San Antonio Christian. Holy Cross offers 19 sports with 29 teams. Annually 75% to 80% of the student body participates in at least one extra-curricular activity.
We welcome you to our Holy Cross family and encourage you to help us continue our journey to uphold our great athletic traditions.
