Inside Athletics

Welcome to Marymount Athletics

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 programs not only provide a student with these opportunities but it 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 Christian 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
 
Sincerely,

  • Varsity Soccer vs. Notre Dame 2.2.22

    The Sailors faced Notre Dame Sherman Oaks on Wednesday night at Notre Dame. Marymount needed at least a tie to clinch first place in the ever competitive Sunshine League.
    The game was the typical battle between two strong teams who never gave up at any moment.
    While 0-0 at halftime, Marymount regrouped and started playing much better soccer in the second half.
    The decisive moment came with about 25 minutes to go, when Milla K.'24 scored a free-kick from around 30 yards out. From that point on, with NDSO pushing forward trying to tie the game, Marymount absolutely dominated and had several chances to score a second goal. The Sailors hit the crossbar and had at least three huge chances saved on the goalline by NDSO defenders. When everything looked lost, NDSO was able to tie the game with three minutes to go, making the final few minutes very tense.
    When the game ended at 0-0, the Sailors rightfully celebrated their victory.
    Marymount finishes League with a 6-0-2 record, undefeated and only giving up 3 goals in 8 games.
    MM will play Archer on Friday and start playoffs next week. Great job Sailors!

  • Varsity Basketball vs. Chaminade 1.25.22

    With Chaminade being ranked #1 in division 1 and them being at the top of our league, our Sailors knew we would have our hands full going into this game with our young team.  Our team played strong and were able to break their full-court press initially, we just panicked and would give up the ball shortly after.  Their aggressive, in your face, the defense caused us to turn the ball over a ton in the first quarter.  In the second, they backed off and it allowed us to move the ball to get some open shots.  In the second half, Chaminade came out in zone defense and we were able to score 22 of our 33 points then. Way to go Sailors! You all fought through adversity and were able to execute on both ends in the second half with a great finish to the game.

  • Varsity Soccer vs. Notre Dame Academy 1.25.22

    Exceptional game for Marymount Varsity today. After tying NDA 0-0 last Friday, missing around 15 chances, the girls came back with a vengeance this week and finished 5-0 against Notre Dame Academy .
    The Sailors started really strong, exhibiting a clear tactical plan which succeeded in taking away all sources of play from the opponents. Whenever the Sailors recovered the ball a scoring opportunity was created and NDA couldn't find solutions to stop the offense which ended 4-0 at halftime. MM never looked back, started the second half really well, scoring the 5th goal very early on. The only chance for NDA came in the final minutes of the game but backup goalie Jaya B. '24 was able to touch the ball just enough to send it to the post and then recover it.
    Varsity is now 5-0-1 in Sunshine League, holding first place with only two games to go.

  • Varsity Basketball vs. Notre Dame Sherman Oaks 1.24.22

  • Varsity Basketball vs. Price 1.22.22

    The Sailors started off the game hot by going up 11-5 on Price early into the first quarter.  Their success came from moving the ball against Price’s zone defense and by us taking high-quality shots.  On the defensive end, we did not allow any penetration into the paint and forced Price to take contested shots from the outside. As the game progressed, Price began to pressure us and we had some hiccups offensively that led to easy baskets for them.  Price also began hitting their outside shots and pulled away in the second half.  
    Spotlight Performer: Cece R.'24  Cece’s offense has started coming along as the season has progressed.  In the game against Price, she scored a career-high of 12pts, while also leading the team in deflections and rebounds.  Her effort on the defensive end is leading to easy baskets for her on the offensive end. Great job Cece!

  • Varsity Basketball vs. Harvard Westlake 1.20.22

    The Sailors struggled against Harvard Westlake’s aggressive half-court man to man defense early in the game.  As the game progressed, the Sailors were able to make the proper adjustments and were able to get some good quality shots.  HW came out in the second half in a zone defense and the Sailors ended up scoring 13 straight points before HW switched back into their man defense.  The Sailors had a great effort on the defensive end in the second half, as they came out way more aggressive than they did in the first half of the game.  

    Spotlight Performer: Yuki P. '24 Although Yuki was unable to take a shot this game, her effort on the defensive end sparked our run in the 3rd quarter.  Her on the ball pressure and off-ball deflections led to additional possessions for the Sailors in the second half.

'22(assisted by Peyton B. '22). After missing a third goal in the second half on a couple of occasions, MM inexplicably took the foot off the gas and allowed for NDSO to get back into the game with a goal in the final three minutes of the game. The referee gave four minutes of injury time and in the second one, NDSO tied the game 2-2.
    When everything seemed lost, MM was awarded a free kick in the midfield circle. Milla K. '24 delivered a great ball into the center of the penalty box and Bella A. '22was able to head the ball in the back of the net over the goalkeeper who went for a desperate attempt to block the ball.
    The final whistle blew a few moments later for a dramatic 3-2 win.
    The Sailors are now 3-0 and in first place in the Sunshine League. Great job!
