Sussex Academy has a new logo, new school colors, and a new mascot for the new school year to coincide with the new school facility.
The Seahawks is the new mascot that was chosen for the new school year. The Sussex Academy will continue to offer both interscholastic, as well as intramural sports. Competing as part of the Henlopen Athletic Conference, interscholastic sports offered on both the middle and high school levels are boys and girls basketball, baseball and softball.
The Henlopen Conference is made up of public schools in both Kent and Sussex Counties. Middle and high school teams will be playing against Delmar, Laurel, Seaford, Indian River, Woodbridge, Milford, and Cape Henlopen school districts.
As the high school enrollment increases, more sports opportunities will be added. By 2015, boys and girls lacrosse and volleyball will be added as JV/Varsity sports, and track & field and cross country are in the planning stages. The sports offered will depend on the students’ interests.
