History

Salesianum School’s Athletic Department and its coaches strive to bring out the best in our student-athletes and to assist them in reaching their full potential in mind, body, and spirit.  As coaches, we believe that athletics are an integral dimension of life.  They teach the values of teamwork, discipline and sportsmanship.  Each member of the running program is expected to be a student first and be responsible for all academics.  Winning comes from team unity and a commitment to the mission and values of the school.  Teamwork from coaches and athletes is primary and is a skill that lasts a lifetime.
