Message from the Athletic Director
Welcome to the Gila Ridge High School Athletic Program!
At Gila Ridge we're excited about athletics. Whether you're a part of a team or in the crowd, we appreciate you. We encourage our students to get involved in areas of interest, develop talents, gain confidences, and learn life long skills. Since opening our doors in 2007, we've been able to develop a strong tradition in many of our programs. Gila Ridge captured its first state championship in 2014 when our Boys Cross Country team won it all and again in 2018 with our boys soccer team. During the 2022 season our cheerleaders also won an AIA State Championship! Our teams have also won numerous region and section championships since 2007, which is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our student athletes and coaches as well as the support of our community.
We believe that the highest potential of sports is achieved when competition reflects the "six pillars of character" in Pursuing Victory with Honor. Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship. We ask that you respect the integrity and judgment of game officials while assisting us in providing a positive experiance for all participants. In order for our athletic programs to grow and succeed, we need the continued support of the community. I personally invite you to our beautiful campus to attend Gila Ridge High School athletic events throughout the year.
