You don’t have to leave your favorite sports behind when you come to GSSM! We have 16 Varsity and two Junior Varsity teams that compete–and win–throughout the state, and more than 65% of our students participate. All Varsity and JV teams play within the South Carolina High School League. To play for GSSM, you’ll need to get a physical to ensure that you’re healthy enough to participate.
We're Successful On the Field Too
GSSM’s varsity sports teams have had great success and big wins in recent years. Our Girls Volleyball team finished 2nd in the state in 2016 and were State Champions in 2018, our Boys Cross Country team brought home the school's first ever State Championship in 2017, we won 7 individual State Championships at the 2018 State Track Meet, our Boys Soccer team were State Champions in 2018, and Girls Track earned the Class A State Championship in 2019.
In partnership with Hartsville High School, GSSM students may be able to tryout and participate on teams at Hartsville High School for sports that GSSM does not currently offer. The GSSM academic and residential program requirements take precedent if a student does play on a team at Hartsville High School.
GSSM also fields a Boys Volleyball team with the Palmetto Volleyball Association.
