Go Saints!

At St. Mary on the Hill Catholic School, college football is not the only exciting sport in the fall. While many in the Augusta area love their SEC football, we at St. Mary’s also love our Saints!

St. Mary’s school is a member of the Augusta-Aiken Middle School League (http://www.augustaaikenleague.com/) which is comprised of nine private schools. 

The fall sports season is always an exciting time for us.  Just as school got off to a strong start, 118 of our 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students participated in cheerleading, cross country, football, golf, tennis, and volleyball.  

Our students enjoy being active – whether it is on our expansive playground during recess, on a sports team or with other extracurricular activities.  Our coaches also enjoy coaching.  All of our coaches are volunteers.  They are parents, family, alumni, and friends of the school who commit their time and talent to the sport and the players.  Thank you for all you do!!!

So, how did our Saints’ fall sports season fare?  Let’s start with football and cheerleading...

The St. Mary’s football team is the undefeated 2015 league champion! Congratulations to our players, coaches, and cheerleaders who cheered the Saints all the way to the championship. 

The girls’ cross country team finished in 2nd place behind Augusta Preparatory Day School (Augusta Prep), and the boys’ team finished in 3rd place behind Augusta Prep and Episcopal Day School (EDS). 

Tennis had a tough season, but it was not from lack of effort. The kids played their hearts out, and most importantly— they had fun. Their season ended on a high note with one of our 8th grade students earning second place in the individual boys’ competition.

Golf swung their way to a 3rd place finish, just one stroke behind 2nd place St. Mary Help of Christians Catholic School (Aiken, SC).  Soooo close!

Our girls’ volleyball team had a strong 8-1 season and brought home the 2nd place trophy.  Great job, Lady Saints!

Just as our fall sports season has come to a close, our winter season with boys’ and girls’ basketball is about to start.  The sign-up sheets filled up quickly and tryouts are this week.  Good luck to all and Go Saints!
