Vanguard Athletic Tradition

When Vanguard opened its doors to students in 1973, only a small handful of sports were available. The first year Vanguard had skeet shooting and water skiing and basketball.  During the second year, Vanguard added many sports including tennis, baseball, softball, archery, golf, karate, and track.
Within a few years, Vanguard had already established itself as a formidable opponent in the realm of athletic competition. The Vanguard Gym was constructed with the famous Carpet Floors!
Our oldest rivalries were formed with the school's inception. 
Today Vanguard offers - Football, Volleyball, Basketball, Cross Country, Track, Softball, Tennis, Baseball, Swimming, Soccer, and Golf!
Our legacy of building champions at Vanguard has grown over the years. Vanguard athletic teams and coaches received recognition for their achievements across virtually every sport.  With many 48 State championships and National honors, our passion for performance has passed from each generation to the next.
