Sports Participation Highlighted by Student's Project
Research shows just how many Hillsborough students play, as well as go on to the next level.
The Hillsborough Board of Education recently received a multi-media presentation on the sports program at Hillsborough High School created as an independent study project by senior Kim Andresen.
The presentation not only illustrated the program, but also outlined facts about participation.
For example, according to Andresen’s research, a total of 736 students participate in fall sports, almost a third of the school’s enrollment, while 489 students take part in winter sports and 703 in spring sports.
More than 100 alumni play college sports while three Raiders have played in the Super Bowl.
But the one statistic that amazed the school board is that Hillsborough athletes have won 131, county, regional and state championships since 2001.
“That’s phenomenal,” Superintendent of Schools Jorden Schiff said.
