Damascus High School (DHS) is well-known regionally and nationally for its championship athletic teams, known as the Swarmin’ Hornets. Unlike most high schools in Montgomery County, Damascus benefits from a large, well-funded, well-equipped and well-managed youth athletic program, the Damascus Sports Association (DSA). DSA is responsible for developing young people into athletes of the highest level, including weekend travel teams. Consequently, by the time these athletes reach DHS, many of them have been teammates in baseball, softball, football, wrestling, soccer, ice hockey and lacrosse for years. The high school’s dozens of state championship banners attest to the effectiveness of the DSA feeder program.
