Marian’s is an integral component of the student athlete’s overall experience at Marian. While the immediate objective of the athletic competition is to win, our challenge as educators and coaches is to prepare students for winning and losing gracefully with the full understanding of the broader purpose of sports: which is to develop a balanced Christian woman. The values of teamwork, leadership, work ethic, respect, accountability, perseverance and self-control are among the many Christian values the Athletic Department staff strives to instill in Marian’s students athletes.
The opportunities for personal growth and achievement are abundant in the athletic arena. The athletic department goal is not only to provide a wide variety of athletic experiences but also to help each young woman and each team to have opportunities to reach a high level of success defined by progress and winning.
Membership on an athletic team is a privilege and not a right; high standards are set for the Marian athlete. Student athletes will be given the opportunities to develop their self management and leadership skills, self esteem, cooperation and team work, personal values, coping skills, sportsmanship and physical fitness while being instructed and motivated to strive for excellence in sport. Through cooperation and teamwork, an athlete learns that weakness is compensated by strength and that success is sometimes achieved only after experiencing failure.
Marian's athletic program consists of nine Class A state-sanctioned sports: volleyball, cross country, softball, golf, basketball, soccer, track, tennis and swimming and diving. Within all nine sports we have a total of 24 teams. More than 40 percent of Marian girls participate in one or more of the athletic teams. Marian’s varsity sports teams have claimed 20 state titles in the last five years, including five back-to-back golf titles and a 2009 perfect score in tennis, the first in Nebraska history.
