We take great pride in our athletics Oak Grove and are proud members of our Conference. Participation in high school athletics is a privilege and we encourage students to participate in order to learn the value of teamwork and working toward a common goal. Oak Grove is fortunate to have excellent athletic facilities thanks to the efforts of a caring coaching staff and community.
Students who participate in athletics choose to do so, and as a result, are expected to display above average character as they represent themselves, their families, and Oak Grove High School.
