AD Message

My name is Smitty Grider and I am the athletic director at Park Crossing High School. On behalf of our coaches, staff and student-athletes, welcome to Park Crossing athletics, Home of the Thunderbirds.


As we embark on yet another season of exciting high school athletics, it is our sincere responsibility to create an experience for our fans that enhances the pride and joy they feel when watching the Thunderbirds compete. It is always our goal to develop our student/athletes into the best people they can be, both as students in the classroom and as athletes competing for championships on the field or court.

We take great pride in our student-athletes here at Park Crossing High School, and we strive to represent you, our loyal supporters, in the most positive manner possible. Many hours of hard work by our student-athletes and coaches go into practicing and preparing for the athletic events that you attend. Our student-athletes also put in many more hours to achieve at a high level in the classroom. A successful program includes dedicated coaches, active support from the student body, outstanding leadership from school administrators, and most importantly, a great sense of pride fostered by the entire community. It will be our mission to facilitate all those facets together to create a holistic student-athlete experience.

Thank you for visiting our website. I think you will find the information on this site helpful as a parent, student, vendor, and as a member of our community. Please check the website throughout the season for rosters, scores, stats and other information.

Go Thunderbirds!
