We believe that participating in athletics contributes to physical, personal, social and spiritual growth.

Each year, more than 650 student-athletes―a little over half the total student body―compete for the Irish on 53 teams in 23 sports. These young men and women add a chapter to the storied history of our athletic program, a tradition of teaching more than just the game which dates back to the 1880s.

Fightin’ Irish History & Tradition

Our athletics program has its roots planted in the late 19th century and has reached some of highest heights here in the 21st. Each of our teams competes in the West Catholic Athletic League, often considered among the highest levels of play in the country. Our tradition of tremendous success reaches beyond our own league, and includes dozens of CCS, Northern California and State titles.
