Athletics

The DSHA Athletic Department is committed to academic success, with over 84% of student-athletes on the honor roll. The program also values athletic excellence, teamwork, leadership, service to others, and sportsmanship. DSHA has earned a competitive reputation in the state of Wisconsin with a number of championships across 15 varsity sports. This includes 7 National Championships, 1 WIARA State Ski Championship, 23 WIAA State Championships, 40 WIAA Sectional Championships, and 56 WIAA Regional Championships since 2001.

Equally proud of our eight non-cut sports, students of all experience and ability levels are encouraged to compete. Over 65% of the student body participates in interscholastic sports. Our outstanding coaching staff works diligently to give student-athletes a quality experience, teaching them not only how to perform in their sport of choice, but how to excel as both leaders and team members.
