CSN Crowned Class 5A 2018 Winner of FHSAA Fred E. Rozelle Sportsmanship Award!
CSN Athletic department is committed to “Excellence” and believes leadership and character development are the foundation of an elite athletic program. Our aim is to match “Athletic Excellence with Academic Excellence” and “Forge the global leaders and citizens of tomorrow through rigorous athletic competition today.” Athletic competition provides our students the opportunity to hone leadership skills, test character, and elevate confidence as they strive for TEAM EXCELLENCE while experiencing personal growth. Our coaches embrace the concept of winning with teamwork, leadership, respect, integrity and work ethic on and off the field. Wins and losses on “friendly fields of strife,” lead to success in life! In fact, this past year—10 teams were crowned District Champions or Runner-up; in addition, 7 teams went on to Regional competition, 2 of them reached the Region Finals and Boys Track & Field placed 5th at State! Individual successes mirrored our team honors as 5 student-athletes were crowned Naples Daily News “Prep Athlete of the Week.” Moreover, 47 CSN student-athletes earned 1st Team, 2nd Team, 3rd Team or Honorable Mention honors in All-Area competition; and 9 new CSN records in Swimming & Diving and Track & Field were set! Lastly, we had our 1st-ever 3 x State Champion—Kane Aldrich in Pole Vault!
Last year, our student-athletes participated in nearly 500 athletic contests from South Florida all the way up to Jacksonville. Over the last three years, CSN Varsity teams traveled to Ireland and Spain; and this September our Girls’ Volleyball team travels to Rome, Italy. We are an active member of the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) and are registered as a “Combined” school—this membership category basically allows CSN student-athletes to compete at the Varsity and sub Varsity level from grades 6 – 12. Our Middle School (MS) maintains a robust 76% athletic participation rate, while our Upper School (US) topped the chart with an 80% athletic participation rate! Twenty-nine MS student-athletes played 3 or more sports while maintaining above a 3.0 GPA; additionally, 37% of our senior class earned multiple Varsity letters while maintaining a 3.75 GPA or higher during their high school career! On average, CSN has sent 13% of graduating seniors on to play intercollegiate athletics at various NCAA Universities and Colleges around the nation since 2015. Over the last three years, CSN Athletics produced 7 Individual State Champions, 169 All-State or All-Area selectees and 3 All-Americans. Since 2017, CSN student-athletes set 23 new school records and the Class of 2018 celebrated as 11% of their classmates earned the privilege of taking their athletic talent to NCAA Division I institutions.
We remain committed to ensuring your daughters and sons have access to the best athletic facilities, equipment, coaches and competition. The above-mentioned results illustrate our commitment to leveraging athletic talent and academic excellence as it relates to giving CSN students the competitive edge needed to gain acceptance into our nation’s top universities. Enjoy the rest of Summer and get ready for an exciting 2018 – 2019 Season! GO SEAHAWKS!!!
