La Salle Athletics

WE ARE TEAMMATES.

A tradition of excellence on the athletic field as well as the classroom, La Salle competes in the New York City Catholic High School Athletic Association (CHSSA) leagues in baseball, basketball, bowling, handball, soccer and track and field.

Basketball

La Salle boasts one of the proudest basketball traditions in New York City. Our students have been competing on the court since 1906, a mere 10 years after Dr. James Naismith invented the game. La Salle has produced seven NBA players, including Dick McGuire ’43, Ed Bartels ’44, Bill Kenville ’48, Tom Owens ’67, John Roche ’67, Shammgod Wells ’95 and Ron Artest ’97. La Salle basketball owns 11 city championships—ranging from 1914 to 2004. In the 2014-15 season, our freshman team made it to the city championship while junior varsity and varsity both battled to the semi-finals.

Track & Field

La Salle’s track and field team consists of cross country running in the fall, indoor track and field in the winter and outdoor track and field in the spring. Endurance, leadership, guts and dedication are prized in these sports, and our teams embody these traits. La Salle’s track teams of the past have been some of the best in New York City history. In 1971, La Salle was the city champ in cross-country and outdoors. Today, we are constantly making strong runs to the top of the league. Practices are held every day after school and meets are on the weekends.
