Athletic Director

On behalf of the Reicher Athletics Department, welcome to Reicher Catholic High School. When you become a member of the Cougar family you are immersed into the rich traditions and history at Reicher. The Athletics Department holds the philosophy that the athlete’s most important tasks are the pursuit of spiritual and personal growth through Mass, prayer, academic work, team experiences, and that you develop a strong sense of servant leadership. We strive to maintain a competitive athletic program in all sports conducted in a manner of that sets an example of good sportsmanship and strong Catholic values. Our primary commitment is to the education of our Catholic values and the academic education of the student-athlete.

There is a great sense of tradition and history of building winning programs at Reicher Catholic High School. There have been 16 State Championships in 10 different athletic events in our history. Our football program has 8 State championships including three consecutive from 2007-2009. Our soccer program has won 6 state championships and swimming recently won state in 2016!  Girls’ cross country won state in 2009 and girls’ track in 2008.

As we head into the 2016-2017 school year we are looking forward to adding to the winning tradition at Reicher Catholic High School in each of our sports. We are also looking at ways to improve our department as a whole. This year you will see more of an athletic training presence from outside services. Taking care of our student-athletes to improve their performance and overall health has to be a priority. If someone is injured this will allow us to get them back on the court or field quicker. Our athletes are getting Impact Tested this year, so that we have a baseline concussion test in case of a head injury. Continuing to improve our athletic department is something that will take the entire community working together.

I am heading into my first year as your Athletic Director, but I feel I have been apart of the community for a while. I have heard great things over the years about Reicher and the great traditions and history. The alumni all speak highly of Reicher Athletics and I am happy to join such a great community.

If you would like to reach out to me you can reach me at msloat@reicher.org

It is a great day to be a Cougar!!
