Thornton Athletic History
|Get to know more about Thornton Academy's athletic history, which stretches back to the school's founding over 200 years ago.|
The individuals in our Athletic Hall of Fame are record-holders in a specific athletic event, have been recognized by local, state and/or regional athletic authorities, and/or demonstrate outstanding performance in a school sport.
Perhaps the best-known interscholastic rivalry in the school's history is our "Battle of the Bridge," a game that still takes place each fall. This annual football game between TA and Biddeford High School is a highly anticipated local event. The first was played in 1893.
Beginning in 2009-10, a new tradition in Thornton's history began. Thornton Academy and Biddeford High School will compete for the Wilson-Agreste trophy, named for former ADs Donald Wilson (BHS) and Richard Agreste (TA). Read more about the trophy by clicking here.
