Inspiring students to achieve extraordinary success!

Welcome to the official site of Pope Athletics.  We appreciate your interest and support of the Greyhound Nation.  Please check out our individual sports by using the links to the left.   We have 16 sports that field 24 varsity teams, plus One Act Play,  that compete in GHSA-sanctioned region and state competitions.  We currently compete in Region 7 in the AAAAA classification. 

Since its opening in the late 1980s, Pope High School has enjoyed tremendous success on the playing fields as the Greyhounds have enjoyed many region and state championships while displaying award-winning sportsmanship and character.  We thank you for your support as we continue to inspire our student-athletes to achieve extraordinary success.

MUST Gobble Jog

Many of you are probably aware that MUST Ministries has a great Thanksgiving morning walk/race to support the feeding of the homeless and less fortunate. But, did you know that one of the top teams every year has been organized by our own Coach Christine Dahlhauser.

We would like to honor her this year by creating the largest team ever to participate and need your help to do that. Those that have participated have found that it is a great way to start the day with all of their family and friends, and the opportunity to honor a great member of the Pope family will make it even more special. You can walk, run, cheer or even sign up if you can’t be there.

We are also entertaining the thought of a pre-race day get together so please email Coach Blythe at as you sign up to get on the master email list, to ask questions or to make suggestions.

Click here to get started and we look forward to a great turn out.

Positive Athlete Program

Pope High School has partnered with Positive Athlete to begin a new program here at Pope.  Positive Athlete celebrates the positive events in high school athletes’ lives and recognizes them through a statewide banquet.  This program was started by Scott Pederson and Hines Ward in the Pittsburgh area.  This program is being implemented in the metro-Atlanta area this year and Pope High School is leading the effort to implement the Positive Athlete program.  Not only will our students be recognized on the state leave, but we have decided to implement this program within the Pope community.  It is our desire to see all the positive student-athletes be elevated within our community and get the praise they deserve for their accomplishments beyond the scoreboard.
