There are thousands of different schools across the United States, but what brings them together is a widely accepted appreciation for athletics. Whether it be homecoming or countless seasons with even more dedicated athletes, the NHP community displays its passion for sports. When talking about athletes, spectators cannot forget the student body cheering on players during games and the dedicated coaches who break down plans for success.


Getting involved in sports teaches countless life lessons that athletes take with them after they graduate from high school. Fortunately for everyone involved in sports at NHP, the fun does not have to stop when they graduate high school. Every year, students show that if someone is passionate about an activity, it is possible to turn that passion into a future.

Seniors Alyssa Baez, Muskaan Kapoor and Faith Binaso sign on to play collegiate softball.


“Being a part of a team has had a huge impact on my experience at NHP. Growing a bond and having that friendship with my teammates on and off the field was a big part of what I loved about high school, especially since I’m playing the sport that I love the most,” senior Gabrielle Munge said.

Taking the next step with high school sports can prove to be an amazing opportunity. Not only does it allow students to pursue areas of interest, but it also has many other benefits. These benefits include financial assistance from select colleges and their sports scholarships. Playing a sport in college allows students to pursue the education of their choice in specific fields, while also putting their time into playing against other colleges.

Underclassmen at NHP share that it is never too early to start when dreaming about and planning for college athletics.
