interactions with officials

Please note that our interactions with officials are to reflect our school's culture and values.  While our venues afford us an intimate "in the action" feel at events,  that proximity cannot lead to negative interactions with officials.   This may lead to a spectator being suspended from attending athletic events at Monsignor Donovan for up to one year.

At no point should a spectator approach officials following a contest.  


Swim coach announcement

Please join me in welcoming Elizabeth Blanco to the Donovan Athletic Department as our Head Swim Coach.  Elizabeth brings with her years of experience coaching on the club level, where she is currently on staff coaching with Athens Bulldog Swim Club.  Her email address is   The team will officially begin practices on Wednesday 10/19 but swimmers can hit the water as early as this evening, email me for more information. 



Please note, as we go forward, Senior Night may not necessarily always be the night of the final home game of a season.  A variety of factors will be considered when selecting the date for any special events during competitions.  Recent years have proven that there are occasions where rescheduling is impossible and we want to be sure we honor our Seniors.



All student-athletes must have their paperwork up to date and in Dragonfly Max.  This platform houses all of our required information.  Parents are advised to scan and upload PDF copies and retain the original (free apps like Adobe Scan can do this for you).   As of 8/1 all student-athletes must be up to date in Dragonfly Max to participate.

I am putting together a comprehensive record of our athletic achievements (Athletic Records, Team Accomplishments by Year, and Rams that went on to compete at the next level).  If you know of someone who has an outstanding athletic achievement at Monsignor Donovan, please share this with me via email.  Please share my contact information with anyone you think appropriate to help compile the achievements of our athletic community.



As of 10/3, new items have been added to the Donovan Athletics Apparel Store .  Featuring items from Nike, Adidas, Under Armor, and more.  Over 100 items are available in Men's, Women's, and Youth sizes/cuts.  Some items allow for additional customization beyond our logo (at an additional cost), and all items state in the description whether the Donovan "D Logo" will be screen printed or embroidered.  These items include a 10% markup that comes back to support athletics.



Donovan D Car Decals are available for $5 in the Athletic Office.  These are high quality decals that are intended to last 3 to 5 years even with regular washing.


As always, let me know if you have any questions.
