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.

Notre Dame

Notre Dame Regional High School, home of the Bulldogs, is located near Cape Girardeau in Cape Girardeau County. The school opened as Saint Mary High School, then was renamed Catholic High School in 1954 when it moved to a new campus. The name was changed to Notre Dame High School in 1960, then to Notre Dame Regional High School in 1998 to coincide with the move to a larger campus west of Cape Girardeau.
