Nampa High School is a four-year public secondary school in Nampa, Idaho, the oldest of three traditional high schools operated by the Nampa School District #131. The school colors are red and blue and the mascot is a bulldog.

Athletics[edit]

Nampa competes in athletics in IHSAA Class 5A in the Southern Idaho Conference (5A). NHS traditionally competed with the largest schools in the state in Class 5A (formerly A-1); with the addition of two new high schools, the drop in enrollment caused a change to Class 4A. Nampa moved backed to 5A in the summer of 2014.

Rivalries[edit]

Nampa has rivalries with Skyview (1996) and Columbia (2006) within the school district. Its traditional rival is Caldwell to the west; all three are also members of the Southern Idaho Conference. In the summer of 2014, Nampa and Columbia moved up to 5A, while Skyview and Caldwell remained in 4A. Prior to the 1960s, Nampa had a strong rivalry with Boise.

1949-50 streak[edit]

During the 1949-50 school year, Nampa's football, basketball, and baseball teams had a combined winning streak of 55 games.[5] The football team won all nine games and the southern Idaho (Big Six) title,[6] and the Bulldog basketball team, led by captain Wayne Blickenstaff, won all 29 games, concluded with an 18-point victory in the state title game.[7][8] Both undefeated teams were coached by Babe Brown,[6][9] formerly at the University of Idaho. The Nampa baseball team won its first 17 games before its only setback of the season, a 4-2 loss to Boise on May 11.[5][10]

The Bulldogs were set to host the four-team state baseball tournament in late May, which included Pocatello, Twin Falls, and defending champion Lewiston.[10] The day before it was to start, an early morning automobile accident after a graduation party south of Lewiston killed three members of the LHS Bengals' team,[11] and the tournament in Nampa was canceled.[12][13]
