Athletic Program

The mission of our athletic program is to offer student-athletes, through participation in competitive athletics, an opportunity to experience meaningful growth, accomplishment, and success. As a Morton Mustang student-athlete you are a positive role model within our school and the community at large. As a student-athlete at our school, your sportsmanship goals should include:

  • Maintaining at least a C+ in all classes, attend school daily, and exhibit positive behavior;
  • Respecting the rules of the games, the officials who administer the rules, and their decisions;
  • Respecting our opponents as fellow student-athletes,
  • Refraining from engaging in all types of disrespectful behavior
  • Looking at athletic participation as a potentially beneficial learning experience, whether you win or lose;
  • Educating other students and fans to understand the rules of the game, and the value of sportsmanship.
