Cardinal Cave - Did you know the Athletic Leadership Team re-opened the Cardinal Cave?  The group spent a lot of time getting the store ready prior to the Grand Opening in December.  The store includes men, women, and youth sizes!  We also have hats, backpacks, golf towels/ditty bags, and much more!  The store is open during varsity events at the high school and you can also stop by the athletic office during the school day to check it out.  As a reminder, if you can’t find what you’re looking for at the Cardinal Cave, you can order all of your Big Rapids gear online at:

The online store allows you to customize your gear and ships directly to your home!

Scholar-Athletes - We are excited to announce that we had two student-athletes selected as MHSAA/Farm Bureau Scholar-Athlete Award recipients.  Pierce Morrissey and Kamryn Cushway were selected as two of the 120 finalists out of over 1,600 applicants!  Of the 120 finalists, thirty-two were selected to receive a $1,000 scholarship and will be honored at the boys’ basketball state finals in March.  Congratulations to Pierce as he was selected as one of the thirty-two winners.
