Flushing High School has always had an outstanding athletic program that has earned conference championships, team awards, individual awards, and several state championships. More importantly, FHS athletics has served as an extension of the classroom to prepare our students for life after Flushing High School. The skills learned through athletics have prepared our student-athletes to be strong leaders in the community and workplace, good mothers and fathers, and loving family members. The Hall of Fame also serves as an important tie between our student-athletes of today and those who have come before them.
