Our Cross-Country team finally kicked off the racing portion of our season this morning as a we faced 16 schools in various divisions who most have been competing for 2-3 weeks. However, that didn't discourage our athletes who have been training hard over these past three months in various conditions. When the races ended, and the results were posted we had three personal best performances for the day and our ladies narrowly missed 2nd place in the JV division by 2 points.
In the Boys Varsity Division, we only had two runners in an extremely fast race that posted the top 10 boys running the race all under 18:00. Our first of two finishers in this race was Jonathan T. who posted a 21:54 which is a new personal best for him in the 5K race. This feat is rarely ever accomplished in the first 5K race of the season. Our second runner Gabe C. ran a 23:41 which is a very respectable finish for his first race of the year.
Following them were our five ladies who were in the Girls JV race. Led by Team Captain Sarah H. she posted a Top 10 finish at 7th place overall with an excellent time of 15:34. She was followed up by a pair of Baron's who both ran personal best times in Camila N. at 16:17 good enough for 15th place and Margaret E. at 17:09 taking 21st place. Next across the finish line was Freshman Phoebe K. who ran her first race with solid time of 17:23 pulling in a 24th place finish. Wrapping up the day for the ladies was Nikki W. who came across the line at 22:35.

Athletics at SMH
Show Your Baron Spirit
At Saint Mary’s Hall, athletics plays a vital role in the development of our students. More than 80% of Upper and Middle School students play at least one sport and many athletes participate in as many as three sports annually. Whether on the court or the field, interscholastic athletics at Saint Mary’s Hall give students an arena to test their limits, cultivate sportsmanship, and master teamwork.
By instilling the classical idea of a “sound mind in a sound body,” athletics help our students discover their own strength as they develop lifelong values of personal integrity, responsibility, courage, and perseverance.

The athletics staff at Saint Mary’s Hall are a group of caring and engaged educators who work to develop a relationship with all their players and athletes, creating a bond where your development outside the sport is just as important as your ability on the field.

I love SMH's athletic program because of how close the teams are. Our basketball team this year was unlike any other because we were more like a family than a team. I also love how supportive and invested our coaching staffs are when it comes to developing athletes. Saint Mary's Hall sports has made me enjoy sports more than anywhere else has.

In all my near 30 years of coaching at one level or another, I've found Saint Mary's Hall to be the most special place of which I've ever been a part of! The desire to learn doesn't end when students leave the classroom each day. They also want to learn all they can about their event and the reasons why we train them in the ways that we do. Student-athletes make it easy for me to achieve one of the two goals I have for each athlete I coach; first perfect their event(s) so that they are able to compete at the next level of competition if they desire and secondly have the knowledge level to coach it after they graduate.

The Athletic Department at Saint Mary's Hall has blessed me with so many amazing opportunities to grow as an athlete and a better person. I am so passionate about athletics and I am blessed to be surrounded by people who are just as passionate as me. The athletic department support has helped Saint Mary's Hall become my second home.

SMH is a unique place where choices are not limited. Our students can explore many extracurricular activities simultaneously, across academics, arts AND athletics. Our Upper School feels like an intimate, collegiate setting, where everyone knows each other well and educators have the time to help each student explore his or her potential. In this broad, inclusive environment, athletics provides our students with opportunities to learn teamwork, collaboration and sportsmanship—and to celebrate all of their successes with each other.
