Welcome to Shawnee Heights High School Athletics Home of the Thunderbirds!
It is an exciting time to be a Thunderbird! Shawnee Heights High School has a rich tradition of excellence and sportsmanship in athletic competitions. SHHS teams compete at a high level and represent the school in a manner in which students and patrons can be proud!
Shawnee Heights competes in 18 Varsity KSHSAA athletic and extracurricular activities and is a member of the United Kansas Conference (The UKC). The UKC is comprised of Basehor-Linwood, DeSoto, Lansing, Leavenworth, Shawnee Heights, Turner, Seaman, Piper, and Topeka West.
On behalf of the Board of Education and USD 450 Administration, I extend our gratitude to the many coaches, parent volunteers, staff members, and the Shawnee Heights Booster Club for their continued support of SHHS athletics and activities.
Please come out and support our students, sponsors, and coaches and help to ensure the continued success of our student-athletes!
