Athletics Overview

War Eagle Athletics

Marist Athletics is an important component of the school’s mission to “form the whole person.” Since the school’s founding in 1901, thousands of Marist students have learned sportsmanship, teamwork, dedication, personal responsibility and leadership on the playing fields. Today, more than 83.5% of Marist students participate in at least one of the school’s 71 interscholastic athletic teams, receiving lessons in responsibility to their school, their teams, and themselves.

A commitment to excellence is shown by the administration, faculty, coaches, parents, and student athletes. In 2016, Marist was awarded the AAAA GADA Directors Cup for the 17th consecutive year in recognition of outstanding overall performance. The Marist Athletic program recently ranked 5th in the nation by MaxPreps based on the final 2015-2016 standings in the MaxPreps Cup race.

MaxPreps Cup rankings are compiled by giving schools points for finishing 1st or 2nd at the state competition level. In 2004, Sports Illustrated named Marist School the #15 athletic program in the country of more than 38,000 high schools in the U.S. Their criteria emphasized all-around excellence during the prior ten years including state titles won and college athletes produced.

  • Alma Mater

    Alma Mater
    Come let our voices loudly ring, and praise to Marist school we sing.
    While we cheer for victory, we proudly hail our varsity.
    Alma Mater, we shall strive to keep our loyalty alive,
    Till at last the years grow cold, our hearts shall cherish Blue and Gold.

    Those joyous days we spent with thee will be a hallowed memory.
    Through the years our thoughts will run to knowledge gained and victories won.
    Marist honor to the end, they glory bright we shall defend.
    We, thy sons, are tried and true, and faithful to the Gold and Blue.

    Lyrics by Len Putnam, Class of 1919
