Athletics[edit]

Regina's sports teams are known as the Regals, with a school mascot named "Crownie," an anthropomorphic blue and gold crown.

The Regals won a state football championship in 2005, and more recently have won a state record six titles in a row from 2010 to 2015,[1] a string that included a record 56 game winning streak from 2010 to 2013.[2] Since 2007, the team has been coached by former NFL tight end Marv Cook, who attended high school at Regina's conference rival West Branch High School.[3]

The Regals have won eight state titles in boys' cross-country since 1993.[4] The girls' softball team took the state title in 2011.[5]
