Compete with Class

"Compete with Class" is a New Mexico sportsmanship program designed to help better understand the true value of interscholastic athletics and activities, which is to educate and prepare our youth for the future.  It was developed through a collaboration of athletic directors, coaches and school administrators as well as input from student and adult communities with the purpose of restoring the placement of interscholastic activities in an educational perspective and providing NM with a sportsmanship program that would be embraced and called our own.
