Athletics

The Norwood Mustangs are a member of the Bay State Conference, a league within the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association.[4] They have a traditional rivalry with Dedham High School and Walpole High School.

In 2016, Norwood explored a move to the Tri-Valley League, similar to Dedham's move after the 2015-16 academic year. Norwood had the second-smallest enrollment of BSC schools during the 2015-16 year with 967, less than half of the largest schools in the conference.[5] In October 2017, Norwood's move to the TVL became official. The 2017-2018 school year was the 60th and final season for Norwood's membership in the Bay State Conference[6].

Norwood High's baseball team won the Division 1 state championship in 2015, snapping a 72-year drought between titles.
