WARWICK, RI (August 29, 2019) – Bishop Hendricken High School was named home to the best boys’ athletics program in the United States on Tuesday by MaxPreps. The ranking, part of the MaxPreps Cup, is based on the 2018-2019 school year, including the Fall, Winter, and Spring seasons.

Hendricken’s nine state championships in 2018-2019, and two runner-up finishes, solidified its spot at the top of the boys’ rankings with a MaxPreps Cup score of 1,518.
