As Director of Athletics, I would like to welcome you to the Marist High School Department of Athletics. I look forward to getting to know you as we progress through our athletic programs. 

Successful athletic programs have specific goals. They include: a positive experience for every athlete and a great sense of camaraderie and unity within their team; an environment that ensures high ethical standards and expectations for equity, fairness and sportsmanship for our student-athletes and coaches.

A successful athletic program also includes dedicated coaches, active support from the student body, leadership from the school administration and most importantly, a great sense of pride fostered by the entire Marist community. It will be my mission to facilitate all those facets together to create the best athletic programs possible.

The past years have produced many championships on the county and state level. Our student-athletes prepare by exhibiting a tireless work ethic shaped after the many alumni who have lead the way. Many will graduate with the opportunity to further their athletic careers at the collegiate level. All will leave as well-rounded individuals representing the Marist tradition for the years to come.

I hope that you are excited ae we approach another year of “Knights” Athletics. This privilege extended to your son or daughter will lay the foundation for future success in life. I am honored to be associated with Marist High School Athletics. And I will work hard on your child’s behalf to promote and strengthen the values our programs.
