Athletic Hall of Fame

Sp Cathedral7

Celebrating a long tradition of athletic excellence, the Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory Athletic Hall of Fame honors the exceptional achievements, leadership and values demonstrated by select individuals and teams from over the years at Sacred Heart, St. Vincent, Cathedral and Sacred Heart Cathedral.

Thousands of Fightin’ Irish and Torrians have worn our colors and competed on countless fields, courts and tracks. We believe that participation in sports naturally augments a student’s educational experience and personal growth. Today, SHC offers a vibrant athletic program, with more than 700 of the school’s students participating on at least one of 56 teams competing in 23 different sports.

Please contact Alumni Engagement Manager Isabella Cerri ’16 at 415.775.6626 ext. 684 for more information.
