The Brook Hill School

A weekly message from the Athletic Director

“ALL ORANGE…All The Time”


All eyes are on the 2014-2015 school year as The Brook Hill Guard moves into Conference AAAA, TAPPS 2nd largest division. Brook Hill comes off another banner year, capturing State Championships in Girls Soccer and Boys Golf. The Guard also had the AAA State Championship Womens Singles and Boys Double Championship in Tennis, along with the State Champion Shot Putter and 4 x 100 Relay Team in Track & Field. Add a Final Four appearance by Boys Basketball, Boys Soccer, and a State Runner-up in Girls Golf and it adds up as to why a 2nd Place finish in the Henderson Cup (TAPPS overall trophy) came on the heals of winning the Cup in the 2013-2014 campaign.

"We think our athletic program is one of the best anywhere" Brook Hill Athletic Director Wally Dawkins claims.

"We have a quality, consistent and experienced coaching staff of 15 Christian men and women who work on our campus full time with hard working, talented and committed athletes, and who receive a tremendous amount of support by their parents. It is just the right recipe for success".

Although The Guard is recognized as one of TAPPS flagship schools as far as athletic prowess goes, Dawkins knows his troops cannot rest on past successes. With that thought in mind, Brook Hill has joined forces with APEC, an athlete performance enhancement group, to raise the athleticism in all its female and male athletes over a 6 week period this summer.

"On Mondays and Wednesdays, all of our athletes grades 6-12 have the ability to do strength training with our coaching staff in the weight room. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, all of our athletes are working with the staff from APEC to improve speed and conditioning. We are willing to do the extra for our athletes to perform at a higher level".

Brook Hill Football, under Head Coach Bobby Brasher, has competed in AAAA for the last two seasons, while the other sports remained in AAA.

"I am encouraged by the success our football program has experienced (state playoff qualifier in 2012 & 2013) that the rest of our programs will follow suite" Dawkins notes. "We will be playing a little bit tougher foe night in and night out, but our kids are up for the challenge. We already are seeing their level of committment raise in their work ethic this summer.

The Guard Football Team, Lady Guard Volleyball Team, Cross Country Team, and Cheer Squads, all roll into action August 4th.

"Athletics at Brook Hill is a big deal" Dawkins concludes.

"We believe we are the Stanford of high school sports in that academics are a priority, while promoting a Christian World View, and competing at a high level, male and female across the board. I take it very personally that every product we put on the field or court represents the quality of our school."
