Go Prairie Hawks!
MCDS Athletics offers students the opportunity to develop teamwork, self-confidence,
perseverance, sportsmanship, and a lifelong love of physical endeavor. Our no-cut policy allows all students to explore fresh opportunities and discover new strengths.
MCDS student-athletes benefit from our carefully maintained facilities, including
our collegiate-level track and gymnasium, as well as our dedicated coaches and supportive school spirit. Our Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association (WIAA) cooperative partnerships with other local high schools provide a range of additional varsity sport challenges to our high school student-athletes.
The MCDS Athletic Tradition is Strong and Growing
• Each year MCDS evaluates new sports, programs, and ideas to expand opportunities for our students. Join in on the fun!
• The MCDS student-athlete also participates in sports outside of the school including Swimming, Baseball, Tennis, Karate, Judo, Taekwondo, Dance, Ice Skating, Cheer, Horseback Riding, Fencing, and Aikido.
