Athletics[edit]

Robert B. Glenn High School offers many sports; they include Baseball, Swimming, Wrestling, Track, Football, Soccer, Lacrosse and Tennis. The 1992 baseball team won the 1992 4A State Championship (27-2). State championships have been won recently in wrestling. Students can participate in any sport with a few requirements, additionally, most sports require students to "try-out". The full list of Glenn's athletic programs includes: Baseball, Basketball, Soccer, Dance Team, Cheerleading, Softball, Cross Country, Swimming, Tennis, Football, Volleyball, Golf, Wrestling, and Track and Lacrosse

Glenn's main rival is near-by East Forsyth High School. In past football seasons, the Glenn-East game was one of the first games of the year. Now with both teams in the Piedmont-Triad 4A conference, it is the finale of the season.
