Athletic Dept Info

Union Grove has a strong tradition of winning! We take our academics and athletics very seriously and have high expectations for our athletes on the fields, courts, courses, mats and track and also in the classroom. Because of this, we are an award winning program on all accounts.

High School athletics can be some of the most memorable and rewarding times in your life, so during the time an athlete is involved at UGHS, we strive to teach them the skills necessary to make them winners in action and in life. Being a member of a team teaches skills that will be carried to the workplace to create a strong foundation of success in each participant’s life. An athlete’s participation in high school athletics should create a sense of pride in being an integral part of something that was achieved through hard work, tremendous efforts and dedication not only to making yourself better, but to be a better for your team.

Whether a team has a winning season or strives to show improvement with each game/contest, an athlete can be proud of the contribution he or she made. Putting on the Maroon and Gray should mean something and should be valued for the efforts made prior to being selected to the team and should drive you to continue to improve. After the completion of your high school career the high school athlete is going on varied paths. Some will continue in athletic endeavors at the next level, while others will seek a college or career/tech degree, military involvement, immediately enter the work force or any number of paths. No matter where life’s journey takes you, I hope that you will remain proud of your years at UGHS and these words will truly mean something to you, “Once a Wolverine, Always a Wolverine!”
