  A Message from the Athletic Director

As we wind up the spring sports schedule, I'm excited to look back on a very successful 2021-2022 athletic year. Dave MallasReturning from the trials we all faced from the Covid pandemic was no easy challenge, but in the end our student-athletes were able to successfully compete with enthusiasm and pride.

While the competition has come to a close, the work in the classroom continues, and I know our student-athletes will continue to strive there in the same way they've done in their individual sport.

At this juncture, our coaches and staff will continue to support out student-athletes in all of their endeavors as we look forward to summer and then a very exciting 2022-2023 athletic season.
