Gaston Day’s Athletic Department exists to fulfill the school’s mission and play an integral role in our students’ overall education; this is done through competitive team experiences that reinforce departmental core values and build school spirit.

Roughly 70% of GDS students in 6th-12th grades participate in one or more sports. Gaston Day has a proud athletic tradition. We have been home to state champions, athletic award recipients, and individuals receiving college athletic scholarships. We have also been home to students-athletes who gave their best to their team on a daily basis without much public recognition. We take great pride in everyone who has worn a Spartan uniform through the years.
