ore than 90 high schools across the 24-county region compete in more than a dozen sports on a varsity level each year. Most compete under the guidelines of the Missouri State High School Activities Association, and others under the sanction of the Missouri Christian School Athletic Association.

Southeast Missouri schools and athletes have won hundreds of state championships in a variety of athletic competitions, including baseball, basketball, cheerleading, football, soccer, softball, track and field, volleyball and wrestling since high school sports first began locally more than 120 years ago.

Much of the historical high school information on this site was gathered by Al Jackson, a longtime Southeast Missouri high school sports advocate and historian whose hard work allows us to share the great teams, athletes and stories of past years. Al died in 2018, and we dedicate these pages to him.

North Pemiscot

North Pemiscot High School, home of the Mustangs, is located near Wardell in rural Pemiscot County. The school opened in 1965 after the merger of Ross and Wardell high schools; students voted on the Mustangs nickname based on popularity of the Ford Mustang, which debuted a year earlier. North Pemiscot also includes the former Hayward High School.
