Athletics at Eastern

It's the roar of the crowd, the "oohs and aahs" that get the athlete going. It's the "You can do it. Keep trying; I am here to help you," that keeps an athlete's spirits high.

Teamwork is stressed and hard work is expected. Sports are more than the wins and losses, more than the trophies and accolades. It's the five days a week of practice, the games in which they prove success, and that extra effort on an athlete's own time. Sports are life for many here at Eastern; they provide a meaningful experience and memories that last forever.

Whether the team is playing Ballard or J-Town, these athletes give 110% to prove not only to their school and peers, but to themselves that they are worthy of the Eastern insignia they wear on their uniform.

Eastern offers more than 17 different sports, from football to the rifle team.
