More than 130 students, over half the student population, will participate in interscholastic athletics at
SAS this fall. Fall athletics at SAS include mountain biking, golf, football, girls’ soccer, varsity volleyball, and cross country. St. Andrew's-Sewanee's education-based athletics program is known for the breadth of its offerings, for cultivating and challenging student athletes regardless of their starting skillset, and for encouraging student-athletes to participate in multiple sports. Last year, six of the school’s athletes qualified for state competitions. Approximately 9% of SAS graduates will go on to play at the collegiate level. This compares with only 3% nationwide.
