In the first decade of sports at Rosecrans, the school established a tradition of athletic excellence. The 1952 and 1954 football teams achieved two undefeated seasons and the 1961-1962 basketball team also chalked up an undefeated season, winning 18 with no losses during the regular season.

The coaches for these teams are well known to the Class of 1955. Dick Mattingly was the school's first football coach. Gene Nangle, a three sport letterman during the 1952-1953 seasons, guided the RHS basketball team to its first undefeated season during 1961-1962.
