Moler owns the school standard of career singles victories (80) and captured 37 consecutive wins in the SBC.
Justin Fender (2002) was the Division II state golf champion his senior year and for three consecutive seasons was selected as the SBC-A Golfer of the Year. He was also a letterman in basketball.
Bill Wildey (1968) is the Lion Award winner. Wildey was a standout athlete on the Lions' football, wrestling, and track and field teams.
