Athletics

We are Warriors! McAuley Catholic High School is a member of Missouri State High School Athletics Association (MSHSAA) and is in the Ozark 7 Conference. Competing in sports from elementary school through middle school and into high school is one way that our system helps to shape children and young adults into well-rounded adults. Playing on a sports team has positive physical, social and emotional benefits. Students who participate in athletics strengthen their sense of respect, accomplishments, character, sportsmanship, and teamwork. Students in our system have a greater opportunity to play varsity-level sports from freshman to senior year. Student athletes have won 31 district championships. The system Athletic Director is Mike Howard.

Athletics Mission Statement

The primary purpose of the Athletic Department at McAuley High School and St. Peter’s Middle School is to help teach important life lessons through athletics. Our student athletes will learn that teamwork, dedication, discipline, respect, integrity, commitment, and hard work are an integral part of their everyday lives. It is the Athletic Department’s goal and objective to work with coaches, administration, faculty and staff of MHS & SPMS to make athletics an extension of the learning environment. Athletics will strive to be a challenging but positive and rewarding experience for the student athletes who participate, and will help develop and mold them into outstanding young adults and leaders of tomorrow.
