Athletic Championship Ceremony

Athletic Champ CeremonyOn September 17, the entire student body and our enthusiastic pep band and flag corp., participated in honoring our athletic teams’ accomplishments from the prior school year, welcomed alums who came back to visit and recognized our 85 coaches. 

For the 2014/2015 Athletic Season, congratulations on 5 District Championships, 5 Regional Championships, 2 Catholic League Championships and a State Championship!

CHEER: Our cheer team has more Catholic League Championships than any other sport at DC. The Divine Child Competitive Cheer Program has established itself as one of the best throughout the State. A year ago this program brought home an unprecedented 16th Catholic League Title, including their 13th straight. They went on to advance through the District and the Regional and placed third in the State!

BASEBALL: With last year’s District Championship, the DC Baseball program has now won 16 consecutive District Titles and 25 overall, the most of any DC sport. The Team also won the State Regional Championship, the 9th in school history.

VOLLEYBALL: Our Volleyball program has put itself on the State Map! They continued their winning ways as they brought home their 3rd consecutive District Title and the 8th in the last 9 years. In addition, Falcon Volleyball won the Regional. It was there 2nd Regional overall and their 2nd in 3 years.

GIRLS TRACK: Our Girls Track program is certainly established as one of the finest in the State of Michigan. Last Spring, they went to work again winning their 7th straight Regional Championship.

BOYS GOLF: The DC Boys Golf program has become one of the most consistent programs here at DC. They have developed over the past several seasons and last spring the Boys won their 5th consecutive District Championship and qualified for the State Finals as a team!

BOYS SOCCER: Divine Child Boys Soccer won their 3rd District Championship in the last 5 years and the 7th overall. The team also played in the Catholic League Finals and the Regional Finals.

BOYS CROSS COUNTRY: Our Boys Cross Country program has been solid for the past 3 decades as they have been a model of consistency. Last Fall, our Boys Team ran to their 5th straight Regional title and have now set the bar for the most Regional Titles in school history with a total of 16.   

POM TEAM: DC Pom took home the Catholic League Championship last year, their 8th overall and 2nd in 4 years. The Pom Team has the most State Titles of any DC sport and Last Winter they added to that total as they won the 11th in program history.

The total of Championships now officially documented here at Divine Child:
District Championships: 124
Regional: 107
State Championships: 37

We have now won a total of 99 Catholic League Championships. So, we will have great reason to celebrate when the next DC Team brings home a league title. Who is that going to be????
