The Charlotte Latin Hawks have been recognized ten times as runner-up and 16 times as winner of the Wachovia/Wells Fargo Cup.
Interscholastic athletics has a long and rich tradition at Charlotte Latin School. Throughout its 45-year history, our students have proven they can compete on the playing field, as well as in the classroom. Along with the many conference and state titles earned over the years, the school has always placed a premium on the values instilled and the lessons learned from athletic competition.
Latin's mission states, in part, that the school exists "to offer growth-promoting opportunities" for the members of our student body. Latin sponsors 69 athletic teams in 12 girls' sports, 11 boys' sports, one co-ed sport, and four intramural teams. Approximately 90% of our students in grades 7-12 participate in at least one sport.
Athletics provide the opportunity to extend classroom lessons to a broader playing field where life lessons can be learned; lessons in teamwork, self-discipline, personal sacrifice, respect, and responsibility that enrich the lives of our students and prepare them for life in the "real world" following graduation. A commitment to athletic excellence is not only reflected in the many championship banners collected over the years, but also through Latin's adherence to high standards of personal conduct and good sportsmanship on the part of coaches, players, and fans.
