Athletes of the Week

Clare Theisen and Cassie Young

Clare Theisen
The freshman midfielder on the lacrosse team had a big role in the team's success last week. A native of Downers Grove, Illinois, she was second on the team in total goals and ground balls while leading the team in caused turnovers. In the Belles' final game of the year, she scored the game-winning goal in an 8-6 victory at home against the University of Dallas.

Cassie Young
The freshman outfielder on the softball team was key to the team's run to return to the MIAA Tournament. A native of South Bend, Indiana, she posted a .438 batting average and belted a .750 slugging percentage on the week. In game one against Kalamazoo, she hit a game-winning walk-off grand slam to help the Belles on their way to a pair of wins which secured the fourth and final spot in the conference tournament.

Congratulations, Clare and Cassie!

Saint Mary's student-athletes are powerful in the classroom and on the playing fields. Our athletic program complements a student's overall educational experience. Many of our varsity student-athletes and teams continually earn Dean’s List, MIAA, and NCAA Division III Coaches’ Academic Honors each year as our coaches and staff mentor and lead them on the path to excellence.

In addition to our varsity athletic programs, students can also participate in club sports and intramurals. Excellent fitness equipment invites all students to have fun while they stay fit.
