About Hempfield Athletics

  • The Hempfield Board of School Directors provides funding for 24 varsity sports and a total of 66 teams competing at the varsity, junior varsity, junior high, and junior high junior varsity levels.
    Athletics are recognized as an integral part of the total educational program of the Hempfield School District. The first and foremost purpose of the Hempfield School District is to provide the best education for our student athletes. Athletics are an extension of the academic curriculum. Athletics contribute to the physical, social, emotional and moral development of the students involved.
    Since it is a privilege to participate on extracurricular teams, each student athlete carries with them responsibilities and expectations set forth by the PIAA and the Hempfield Board of School Directors.
    Our goal is to develop highly competitive athletes without losing sight of the educational process and its values of sportsmanship, health, and scholastic achievement.
    In 2017-2018 the Black Knights combined to win 5LL Section Championships, 4 LL Championships, 5 Individual LL Championships, and 1 District 3 Championship.  The Black Knights have combined for 17 PIAA Championships in the past 18 years.

    Posted by Kimberly Snyder on 3/26/2019 2:30:00 PM

    The boys' and girls’ tennis teams completed four weeks of volunteering with the Steinman Cup tennis program. The team assisted with the 10 and under and the Special Olympics tennis players. All of the Hempfield tennis players were kind, enthusiastic, and helpful. It was truly a great experience for everyone involved! A big “thank you” to head tennis coach Mindi Bell and the boys’ and girls’ tennis student-athletes.

    Students and volunteers stand on a tennis court holding rackets, smiling toward the camera.
