Bishop England High School
Bishop England is the largest private high school in South Carolina, and the impressive volleyball team is what the school is best known for. They’ve won every state title since 2000 and have earned 27 since their inception. The 17 consecutive titles made them the new national record holders, a record that has yet to be broken.
USA Today called Bishop England one of the top 10 high school athletic programs in the country, noting that they “carry an unmatched tradition of dominance,” in South Carolina. Houston Astros player Drew Meyer and former New York Nicks player/the varsity coach at Bishop England for 20 years, Tom Lavelle, both graduated from the school themselves.

The team remained undefeated for four consecutive seasons, from 2009 to 2012.
There hasn’t been a single decade since their inception in 1899 that the Warriors football team hasn’t earned at least one title. Today, the Warriors are known as the best high school team in the state. Philadelphia Eagles linebacker, Nathan Gerry, and former Green Bay Packers player, JaRon Harris, are among their most famous pro sports players.
