A Message from the Athletic Directors


At Saugus High School, athletics are an integral part of the high school experience. High school athletics have the ability to unify campus and community, as student-athletes take to the field, court, track, and pool in pursuit of athletic excellence. The athletics program at Saugus High School would not be able to operate without the hard work of our coaches, athletic trainers, teachers, administration, custodial and grounds crew, office staff, and ASB. Most importantly, our school’s success begins with supportive families at home.


Since Saugus High School opened in 1975, our sports teams have combined to win over 115 League Championships, 22 CIF Championships, and 10 State Championships. There have also been numerous CIF and State Individual Champions in swim, track and field, and cross country.

Centurion athletic programs compete in the Foothill League, which is comprised of Hart High School, Canyon High School, Valencia High School, West Ranch High School, and Golden Valley High School. All of our teams compete within the CIF-Southern Section, which has 581 member schools. For each sport’s playoffs, the Southern Section is separated into divisions based upon factors such as enrollment, league, geographic location, and previous year’s performance.

The Saugus community has an extremely high standard with regard to sportsmanship and conduct. We expect that both our coaching staff and student athletes uphold these standards at all times. We also expect that spectators at our games exhibit the same behavior towards our coaches, students, and sporting officials.


We highly encourage prospective and current students to take advantage of the excellent sports teams that are offered at Saugus High School.


For more information about our athletic programs, tryouts, and other opportunities, please stop by the Athletic Director’s Office to speak with a member of our staff.


Thank you, and Go Centurions!
