Our commitment to athletics is reflected by the breadth and depth of our participation opportunities: we field 50 teams in 24 sports, in addition to a collegiate-style intramural program. Over 900 students participate in at least one sport. Cardinal Gibbons was recognized as the 2015-16 NCHSAA Exemplary School, underscoring our commitment to athletics in the classroom, community and competition.
"Above all, Cardinal Gibbons carries an exceptional record of sportsmanship and training young men and women to be great leaders through education-based athletics. These reasons and more are why we were glad to select Cardinal Gibbons as this year's winner of the prestigious 'Exemplary School Award'."
