Weekly Conference Schedule and Results
Circle City Conference
The Circle City Conference brings together like-minded schools from the Greater Indianapolis metro area to provide a framework for excellence in interscholastic athletic competition. Within a context of appreciation and support for the unique characteristics of member schools, the Conference enhances student opportunities and achievement in all areas of each school’s programs.
Bishop Chatard Trojans
Bishop Chatard High School, a dynamic educational environment for young men and women with different life experiences, is directed to the success of each student, focused on the growth of the whole person, and modeled on the teachings of Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church.
Bishop Chatard High School prepares students for a life-long commitment to faith, learning, leadership, and service.
Brebeuf Jesuit is committed to the care of the whole person and seeks to form young men and women of outstanding character. Athletics can be an important part of this formation process, and so the school as a whole commits itself to the following code of ethics in order to promote the best possible experience for all involved. The example set by our coaches is of paramount importance, and therefore coaches always model the highest sportsmanlike behavior.
Covenant Christian Warriors
At Covenant Christian High School, we strive to train every student not only to understand his world from a Christian perspective, but also to engage that world and impact it for Christ.
Too often, Christian education is equated with being sheltered from the secular world. At Covenant, teachers help students examine all of life through the lens of biblical truth. New students are often surprised at Covenant’s willingness to examine tough questions and issues sometimes considered taboo. Believing that every detail in our world is designed by God and demands a human response, we challenge students to see how Christ is Lord over all of their studies.
Covenant’s prayer is that its graduates will enter the world having had their minds enlightened, their hearts inflamed, and their lives transformed.
Guerin Catholic Golden Eagles
At Guerin Catholic High School, we believe extracurricular activities are vital to a student’s growth. Athletics and extracurricular clubs teach young men and women how to be a part of a team and, most importantly, how to work with others towards a common goal. Our Catholic faith is visible in our athletic programs. Students are taught how to play with noble sportsmanship and integrity. We strive to be humble in victory and graceful in defeat.
Heritage Christian School
Heritage Christian School has established a rich tradition of excellence athletically, academically, and spiritually. It is our mission to glorify God through the discipleship of student-athletes and the pursuit of excellence in athletics, with the Bible as the foundation and Jesus Christ as our focus. This mission is at the core of what drives our programs, coaches, and players to pursue athletics in a way that is distinctive and brings honor to Jesus Christ.
Roncalli High School is a Catholic high school located in Indianapolis, Indiana. As a Catholic high school, our pledge is to provide, in concert with parents, parish, and community, an educational opportunity which seeks to form Christian leaders in mind, body, and spirit. Guided by prayer and the Gospel values of faith, love, and justice, students are challenged to respond to the call of discipleship and to fulfill their potential as lifelong learners in service to others. Our end is to make God’s love complete among us.
