      Athletics Association 

      The Edgewood Athletics Association (EAA) helps to support our student athletes in their pursuit for excellence—both on and off the field. Through annual events like the Crusader Kickoff and Earl J. Wilke Golf Classic, we raise funds for the school’s athletic program and co-curricular activities and build camaraderie among parents, alumni, and parents of alumni. We welcome nominations of athletes and outstanding coaches or volunteers to our Athletics Hall of Fame. If you’re interested in joining the association, please contact Chris Zwettler.
