commitment to teams

High School Athletics are competitive in nature and being a part of a team requires commitment.  Life happens and emergencies do come up.  However, participants on teams need to be in regular attendance, and communicate with their respective head coaches regarding absences,  Failure to do so may result in dismissal from a team.  We want our student-athletes to be well rounded, however absences for non-Donovan related activities will not be considered excused absences.   Please be aware that the official Monsignor Donovan policy is as follows: "[a]ny student-athlete who begins a season as a member of a team and quits that team before the end of the season, may not try out for another sport until the previous season has ended."

dessert Theatre performance - 10/26

The Donovan Drama Department would like to invite you to join them this Wednesday in the Gym for a Dessert Theatre Dress Rehearsal for the GIAA Region 2-AA One Act Competition.  Doors will open at 6:00, performance is at 6:30.  Admission is free but Donations are requested to cover the cast's meals at competition.  Suggested Donation is $5 for adults and $2 for students.

 

Suggested Donation: $5 adults, $2 students.

 

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.  

 

Donovan Swimming

Anyone interested in the Donovan Swim Team should email Head Coach Elizabeth Blanco ASAP at elblanco@mdchs.org.  This includes Cross Country runners who want to join following their season. 

 

SENIOR NIGHT AND SPECIAL EVENTS

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.

 

DRAGONFLY MAX / ATHLETIC PAPERWORK

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.

SCHOOL ATHLETIC RECORDS AND COLLEGIATE ATHLETES

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.

 

APPAREL

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.

 

CAR DECALS

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.
