Gifts to the Crusader Athletic Fund are crucial to helping St. Mary’s continue to educate students who excel in the classroom, in the community, and on the field of competition.
These gifts allow St. Mary’s to field an athletic program that strives to instill in our students hard work, respect for others, and commitment. Crusader Athletic Fund gifts are used to waive fees for students who otherwise would not be able to afford to participate in sports. Along with helping to fund improvements to St. Mary’s facilities and providing athletes and coaches with resources and equipment critical to safe and effective training.
Additionally, later in the summer of 2022, we will begin a complete overhaul of our twenty-year-old track. This campaign, "Racing to Cross a New Finish Line: The Campaign for the St. Mary’s Track" has a goal of $750,000 which will be funded through financial reserves and philanthropy. The New Track and Field construction will include:
New Eight-Lane Oval Track
New Pole Vault/Long Jump/Triple Jump Runway
Updated Discus Space
Demo Pole Vault Pad and Long Jump/Triple Jump Landing Pit
