Walker School Athletics fields over 50 teams in 16 sports, with students typically beginning in the 6th grade. Nearly 70% of our Middle and Upper School students play at least one sport each year, and over 30% will play more than one sport (we support multisport participation over specialization). With 132 region and state championships to our name, Walker is committed to fielding strong teams in all sports, but above all, our aim is for our students to compete with great enthusiasm and to demonstrate exemplary sportsmanship.
Congratulations to Janie Harrison, Emma Toro, Lauren Haynes and Sofia Slavov for being named to the All-Region Volleyball Team! Nominees were voted on by all of the Region Coaches. Way to go, Wolverines!

We have two amazing photographers who are taking pictures of your athletes as well as other activities at Walker. The school has hired professional photographer Paul Webb to document select activities throughout the year. He has created a WEBSITE of Walker photos covering last spring and this fall that may be purchased for a nominal fee. Our own Mike Mackey's photos are available on our website in the MEDIA GALLERY and may be downloaded at no cost. Photos will be added to these sites throughout the school year.
