At Marymount, we believe our athletics programs help young women develop skills that nurture the intrinsic qualities and values of sportsmanship. We also believe that honesty, diversity, and integrity create the core foundation of a Marymount student-athlete. Marymount Athletics provides each student with the opportunity to work with a team toward a common goal that shapes an athlete’s character and strengthens her moral development. Our athletics program not only provides a student with these opportunities but also prepares her to compete successfully at the next level, collegiately and in life. The confidence achieved through success in attaining one’s individual goals is demonstrated in young woman’s poise, maturity, and compassion.
A young woman who feels good about herself also accepts others more readily and is consequently more willing to reach out and assist her fellow women and men. It is our goal for our students to demonstrate love with a strong sense of justice in all of their endeavors, showing kindness, joy, self-discipline, and perseverance. We wish all of our athletes great success while remembering that, “when the Great Scorer comes to mark against your name, he writes not that you won or lost, but how you played the game.” –Grantland Rice
