Athlete of the Week

Stephanie Szymas

The freshman goalkeeper on the lacrosse team was named MIAA Defensive Player of the Week for her efforts last week. A native of Grand Haven, Michigan, she made 26 saves with a save percentage of 56 percent for the week. She made 15 saves in a 12-9 loss to Olivet, then turned away 11 shots as Saint Mary’s edged Trine, 9-8, in double overtime for its first-ever MIAA women’s lacrosse victory.

Congratulations, Stephanie!

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.
