Welcome to the athletic program at DSHA! The 2011-12 school year marks my 24th year as Athletic Director at DSHA and I have to say that the programs have changed tremendously over the past 24 years. When I first came to DSHA, we had cross country, tennis, volleyball, basketball, soccer, softball and track and field. Over the years we have added golf, swimming and diving, downhill skiing, rugby, field hockey and are involved in a co-op team in ice hockey. I guess you could say that we have almost doubled our offerings! We have done this because we have tremendous interest on the part of our students to be involved in a sport and we encourage their participation. In fact, over 60% of the student body is involved in the athletic program.
I believe we have an outstanding staff of coaches who work really hard to give students a quality experience, as well as a very supportive administration and staff to help make that happen. Being a part of a team helps the girls build character, leadership skills, form lasting friendships, develop team building skills and learn time management. These are lifelong skills that carry beyond the playing field and provide a lifetime of memories.
It is a pleasure and honor to work with everyone associated with athletics at DSHA. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions regarding the programs offered.
Mrs. Peggy Seegers-Braun, CMAA
