A strong athletic program is one of the hallmarks of an Oak Grove education. Students are encouraged to work hard and reach their full potential. Our teams have enjoyed many regional and even state championships.
At Oak Grove, we’re competitive and we like to win. At the same time, we are ever mindful that sports not only build character, but reveal character.
Our sports teams not only succeed in competition, but also in the classroom. Each year, nearly all of our athletic teams receive NDHSAA Team Scholar Awards for their collective grade point average.
Oak Grove is proud of all the student-athletes’ successes. Go Grovers!
“I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”
