Welcome to Lion Nation! In our athletic program, students have a forum to develop their physical skills and finetune their abilities to be the best that they can be. In doing so, they experience a sense of self-accomplishment and improved self-esteem in knowing that they have achieved their personal best. In addition, athletics are an extension of the school that reaches into the surrounding communities and represents the best of the school. Athletes are proud to represent the Academy and they are loyal to its mission.
Socially, athletes are taught to work within the group, to be dedicated to their team, and to make personal sacrifices for the common good. They learn to take responsibility for themselves, and to respect themselves, their coaches, their teammates, and their opponents. Athletics, by nature, provide a significant opportunity to instill the qualities of personal integrity, honesty, and self-discipline. Athletics, governed by a level of conduct according to the true spirit of the game in accordance with the unwritten rules, are an integral part of the Mount’s athletic program.
Competition is our way of life. Competitive athletics demand dedication, excellence, determination, and courage to always give 100 percent of themselves and being humble in victory and gracious in defeat. Within the competitive arena, one is to put forth the best of herself and together to represent the best of Mount Saint Mary Academy.
We are MOUNT PACK! Go Lions!
