Eagles Beyond BA

Each year, BA student-athletes are offered opportunities to continue their education and to be a part of athletics beyond their high school years. Many men and women are awarded scholarships to play at the college level and others qualify for teams due to their academic accomplishments and excellent training while at BA. We celebrate the opportunities for these alumni to participate at the next level.   A few of our alumni participate in their chosen sport beyond college by competing at the next level or coaching. We are honored to recognize them, as well.
