The role of athletics in a McDonogh student’s life is important. The Athletic Department believes athletics are an extension of the academic day where valuable lessons are taught. Our sports programs are designed to be in harmony with the educational objectives of the school, and we believe in a multi-sport philosophy. Additionally, we seek to provide opportunities in which students can participate in a healthy and competitive environment and develop socially, mentally, and physically. Students learn life lessons such as how to work with a group, how to be unselfish, how to be resilient when things don’t go well, and how to be gracious winners and losers.

I am thankful to McDonogh and every valuable experience that has developed who I am and what I represent to all others around me.
