Student Athletic Council

Student athletes from a variety of sports' programs at Southport were chosen to represent athletics and be the voice of Southport student athletes. So far this year they have developed a new sportsmanship statement. They just shot a video that will be played on the video board before games in the Fieldhouse reading the statement below.

"Southport High School is committed to demonstrating respect for all of our fellow athletes, coaches, officials, and spectators. All representatives of the Southport athletic programs, as well as the student body, should exhibit positive behavior. A core value in athletics at Southport High School is to stay humble through victory and defeat. Together, we will make our community proud and will show what it truly means to be a Cardinal."

Fall Sport Seniors

Thank you for your commitment to Southport and your respective sports. You've made us all proud. Best of luck in the future!


The Cards wrapped up the regular season with a win on the road against Bloomington North. Southport won 42-7.

To wind down the regular season, the Cards hosted Columbus North on Senior Night. After a scoreless first quarter, the Bulldogs took the lead going into halftime. The second half was played even, leading to a Columbus North victory.

Southport hosted Avon in the first round of the IHSAA 6A sectional on a cold and rainy night. The Cards marched down the field on their first possession but the officials ruled the ball did not break the plane of the goal line. After a highly competitive first half, the score at halftime was Avon 7 and Southport 2. Avon got it going in the third quarter and put the Cardinal defense on it's heels. That quarter proved to be the difference in the game leading to an Oriole win, 33-2.


The girls season came to an end in the sectional. After defeating the host Decatur Central, the Cards fell to Perry Meridian.

Tiana Wright earned All County recognition from the Marion County Coaches of Girls Sports Association. Maggie Davis and Lauren Cullison received Honorable Mention.

Great job Cards!

The girls team won the sectional and placed 3rd in the regional. They also raced hard during the semi-state.

In the IHSAA State meet at Lavern Gibson in Terre Haute, Crook finished 25th in route to "All State" honors. This also earned him a spot on the Indiana All Star Cross Country team that will compete at the Mideast Cross Country Championship in Ohio on November 18th.

Boys Soccer

The boys ended the soccer season with a 2-3 loss to Perry Meridian in sectionals. Hunter Cocherell and Run Ro Thang each had goals to tie the game.

Girls Basketball

The girl's season kicked off with the annual Red & White scrimmage. The scrimmage was highly competitive where players from all levels played in four quarters. Each quarter allowed the girls to practice different defenses and offensive sets.

We are all looking forward to seeing this group of young ladies play this year.
