North Schuylkill Athletics

Welcome to the North Schuylkill School District Athletics page!

The 2020-21 school year was challenging in so many ways. The COVID-19 pandemic had a major effect on the daily operations of high school athletics. However, despite all of these challenges, we were fortunate to have all of our teams participate in each of the sport seasons. This was made possible through the hard work, and commitment to our sports safety protocols, from our staff, student athletes, coaches, and spectators. 

Through all of the ups and downs, the North Schuylkill Athletic Department would like to congratulate our students on another successful school year! 

Last year was another great year in the chapter of Spartan Athletics. The Girls Track and Field team brought home the Class AA State Championship, the first Track and Field state championship in school history. It was also our first State Championship (in any sport) since the 1995 Spartan Wrestling team won gold in Hershey. The Spartan Football team won the Schuylkill League Division 1 title, and were the District XI AAA Champions. The Lady Spartan Cross Country team won the Division 1 title, and saw Cori McCormick win the All League Meet Championship for the 3rd straight year, and won her first District XI AA Championship. The Lady Spartan Basketball team repeated as Schuylkill League Champions. The Lady Spartan Softball team won the Division 1 title, and the Schuylkill League Championship! Along the way, we had several individual athletes represent NS at Districts and States in the sports of Golf, Cross Country, and Track and Field. Cori McCormick and Sarah Wagner won District XI AA Track and Field gold medals, and our relay team of Cori McCormick, Katie McCormick, Ryley Schwalm, and Kailey Roberts were District Champions in the 4x800 relay. 

The athletic program at North Schuylkill is based on the philosophy of putting “student-athletes first, and winning second.” Our goal is for student-athletes to learn teamwork, discipline, and group responsibility, which will allow them to appropriately deal with success and overcome adversity. Research proves that those who participate in extra-curricular activities tend to attain better grades and have fewer discipline problems than those who do not participate. 

 The Athletic Department will provide every opportunity for students to participate in athletics, and also provide the proper facilities and dedicated coaches. North Schuylkill is a member school of the P.I.A.A., and we participate out of District 11. We are a proud member of the Schuylkill League. 

 We hope that this site will be a useful tool for parents, student-athletes, and members of the “Spartan Nation”. Please check back for updated information and schedules throughout the school year. Additionally, you can get updates on the latest news, postponements, and announcements on Twitter, by following @NSAthletics1, and also on Facebook, by following the North Schuylkill Athletics page.

Go Spartans!
