Pine Crest School - Athletics



Pine Crest has varsity and junior-varsity (JV) sports teams, including football (1998 Division 15-3A champions), cheerleading, lacrosse, crew, cross-country, track, soccer, baseball, basketball, volleyball, swimming, tennis, and weightlifting. Athletics are divided into fall, winter, and spring sports, with some programs holding practices during all three seasons. Several Pine Crest alumni have participated at the Olympic Games as swimmers.

In basketball, two-time Gatorade National Boys Basketball Player of the Year Brandon Knight led the team to Class 3A state titles in 2008 and 2009. In July 2010, Knight was also named the National Player of the Year at a ceremony prior to the ESPY Awards in Los Angeles. Regarded by many as the number-one recruit in the Class of 2010, Knight announced his decision to attend the University of Kentucky live on ESPNU on April 14, 2010. After Brandon Knight's graduation, Pine Crest's basketball team was able to net another championship with a Class 4A state title in 2012.

The Pine Crest boys' lacrosse team was the state champion in 2002. The swim team has been ranked in the top 10 nationally for the past years.

The crew team attends regattas most weekends from February through May and sends over 20 rowers each year to the preliminaries for the CRASH-B Sprints. In 2010, the varsity women's team placed second at the SRAA (Scholastic Rowing Association of America) championships.
