Bishop McGuinness High School

Athletics » Home


The Bishop athletic program gives students opportunities to participate in a variety of sports. Student athletes enjoy and excel in competition, teamwork, cooperation, and working together to achieve a common goal. Our athletic department works to provide the utmost positive experience for every student on every team for every season at Bishop McGuinness.

The school is a member of the NC High School Athletic Association and the Northwest Conference. We compete – and win – against the top public and private schools in the Triad, and are eligible for participation in the NCHSAA State Playoffs in all sports.

Why are we called the Villains?

Our school mascot, “The Villain,” comes from our early roots at the Villa Marie Anna Academy. The school motto, “Praesis ut Prosis” is taken from the seal of the late Bishop Eugene J. McGuinness and serves as a challenge for all who would desire “to excel that they might better serve.”
