Building Tomorrow's Leaders
Alumni, parents, and fans alike can recall numerous memorable and defining moments involving athletics.
Saint Mary’s athletics strives for excellence on and off the field. Along with a 2000 National Championship in softball, we’ve recently garnered team and individual national tournament appearances, conference championships, a myriad of coach-of-the-year honors, and a wealth of All-American titles.
In the classroom, our student athletes’ GPAs are equivalent to or higher than the general student population. Additionally, our athletes are encouraged to live the mission of the university by serving as examples of ethical leaders on campus and in the community. The world needs more people who have had these experiences—people who know that teamwork is essential to success.
From donating blankets to raising money for cancer research, and from hosting toy drives to assisting with cleanup in flood-ravaged communities, community service has become a hallmark of Saint Mary’s University athletics, garnering national recognition in recent years, including the nation’s top community service award for NCAA Division III athletic departments, the Josten’s Community Service Award.
