With the Class of 2019, Colorado Academy celebrated a banner year for student-athletes. Typically, about 10 percent of students in the CA Senior class commit to post-high school sports. In 2019, 20 percent of our graduating students will go on to play a wide variety of sports at the Division I and Division III levels.
On April 11, at the CA Campus Center, Director of Athletics Bill Hall honored the Division III athletes and thanked the coaches, teachers, advisors, and parents who have helped them achieve success. He pointed out that all of these student-athletes have performed at a high level in many areas. They are multi-sport athletes who play instruments, sing in the choir, perform well academically, serve as student leaders, volunteer in the community, speak multiple languages, and perform on stage.
