The Phoenix Athletic program was born in the 2008 – 2009 school year, under the leadership of Athletic Director and P.E. Coach, Coach Areon Atkinson. In its inaugural year, the program fielded 4 sports: Volleyball, Boys’ Basketball, Girls’ Basketball and Baseball. All are sanctioned by the FHSAA.
Once the department began to establish competitive and winning traditions, the athletic program introduced two new sports to its roster: Softball in the 2009 – 2010 school year and Bowling in the 2010 – 2011 school year.
After only three years of participation and only one year of post-season eligibility, our competitiveness is already evident from the two Class 2A District 10 Runner-up trophies, as well as the one Regional Championship and a State Finals appearance by the BDCHS athletics program. As BDCHS continues to grow, so will the athletic program.
