Athletics play an integral role in the life of Lehman students. The school fields 18 varsity sports including: Soccer (men's & women's), volleyball (women's), football, Tennis (men's & women's), Cross-Country (men's & women's), Basketball (men's & women's), Swimming/Diving (men's & women's), Track (men's & women's), Softball, Baseball, Wrestling, and Golf (men's). The school's mascot,the Cavalier has been in use since the school's merger in July 1970. Prior to the consolidation,the Cavaliers were the name of the former Piqua Catholic High School's football,basketball and baseball teams while the former Sidney Holy Angels High School basketball and baseball teams were known as the Wings. The original Cavalier logo was inspired by a drawn caricature in 1950 depicting Jose Ferrer as Cyrano de Bergerac noted especially for its long nose. It was used throughout the 1950s and 1960s by the former Piqua Catholic and was later incorporated during Lehman's early years. The current logo is an image of a blue broad brimmed hat above two criss-crossed swords fronted by the team's emblem. Lehman's music program includes its marching and concert bands and the Lehman Limelighters song and dance troupe.
