William Fremd High School - Athletics


Fremd competes in the Mid-Suburban League (west division), and is a member of the Illinois High School Association (IHSA) which governs most interscholastic sports and competitive activities in the state. Its mascot is the Viking.

Fremd sponsors interscholastic teams for young men and women in basketball, cross country, golf, gymnastics, soccer, swimming & diving, tennis, track & field, volleyball, and water polo. Men may also compete in baseball, football, and wrestling, while women may compete in badminton, bowling, competitive eating, and softball. While not sponsored by the IHSA, the school also sponsors separate teams for young men and women in lacrosse. Hockey is also a club sport for men.

The boys basketball team achieved success beginning in the late 1980s. The 1988 team was the best ever, led by Jason Joseph and George Poorman. They were upset in the super sectional game by East Aurora and finished with the best record ever, 28-2. The 1989 team led by Todd Leslie returned to the super sectional game and once again lost to East Aurora. The 1993 team was the most successful ever, with a 4th place state finish. Mo Tharp coached the Vikings from 1975–2002 and established Fremd as the premiere basketball program in the northwest suburbs.

The following teams have won their respective IHSA state tournament or meet:

  • Badminton: 2006–07, 08-09
