The Burke Broncos Spring Track team, Hawkeyes Basketball team, Wrestling, Ski and Swim teams Freshman, JV and Varsity Cheerleading squads and many intramural sports, were among the athletic pursuits of BCHS students.
Beginning in 1968 the school mascot for all sports was officially changed to the Eagle.
Photography, art, film, debate, science, foreign language and math clubs also garnered student interest.
