By Lilly Miller, MS Athletics Director

Every spring, we honor eighth graders that are University School of Nashville multi-sport athletes who play three or more sports for our school throughout the year for their commitment and dedication to our athletic program. 

Middle School is a great place, and time in a student's development, to try many different things. We’re grateful for these eighth graders and their families for choosing us — choosing to come to practices, travel to games, and sacrifice elsewhere to keep our programs strong and robust.
