Athlete of the Week

Janice Heffernan

The junior on the golf team had a solid showing this past weekend. A native of Floyds Knobs, Indiana, she improved her score from day one to day two by six strokes to record a 78 and take ninth place overall at the Ohio Wesleyan Laura Bump Invitational. Her two-day score led the team as the Belles finished fourth in a field of 18 teams.

Congratulations, Janice!

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.
