St. Anthony High School has, as part of its mission statement, the goal of educating the whole person: mind, body, and spirit. A very valuable part of that process can occur in structured athletic competition.
As both a parish and a school, we are fortunate that many people have put in a great deal of time and effort and, as a result, a rich and proud athletic tradition has been established. This tradition is to be respected and not taken lightly. Every person, administrator, coaches, parents, and student/athletes, benefit from what has come before them, and their every action serves to become what the future will be.
It is the philosophy of the administration of St. Anthony High School that all parties involved in athletics must work together to achieve success. It must be understood that success can be measured in terms other than wins and losses. Success is also an in-measurable quantity.
Lessons learned from competition; not the least of which are sportsmanship, teamwork, and commitment, serve to benefit the individual long after the memories of wins and losses are forgotten. Persons who become part of the Athletic Program at St. Anthony High School must also learn the value of respect. Our facilities will remain a source of pride only as long as they are treated that way. Our interpersonal relationships will only grow in an environment that fosters mutual respect. Our reputation will only be as good as we make it. It is imperative that our young people are not just athletes, but student/athletes, and always students first.
