Home of the Eagles

Bishop Watterson has many teams compete for state championship titles. Sports that are offered include baseball, basketball, bowling, cross country, diving, field hockey, football, golf, lacrosse, soccer, softball, swimming, tennis, track and field, and volleyball. In addition to two gymnasiums and a weight room, Bishop Watterson's campus includes a baseball field, football practice field, soccer field, and a track. Bishop Watterson does not have their own football or soccer stadium. Instead they rent the use of the football stadium at old North High School from Columbus City Schools for their home games.

We ask all fans to cheer for your team enthusiastically and in a positive manner. Good sportsmanship is demanded from the players, coaches and fans. We hope you, too, believe that good sportsmanship is a value worth protecting and teaching. Best of luck to all our teams!
