Kerry Oshita, Athletic Director

St. Vincent Athletics is committed to the total education of our students by providing a comprehensive, fair and equitable program for the school community in a caring, supportive environment.

The athletic program strives to enrich the mental, physical and moral development of all students by integrating athletics in the school’s education program.

The athletic program strives for excellence with these primary goals as our focus. Championships, individual recognition and competing at the next level are desirable outgrowths of our sports program but are secondary to its primary goals.

Comments from Our Coaches

“At St. Vincent’s we have a true student-athlete.  As a compliment to their academics. they are able to play multiple sports, develop discipline, increase their work ethic and learn the importance of teamwork in reaching a common goal.  These are all skills and attributes that they will apply throughout their lives.”

Scott Himes, Head Boys Varsity Basketball Coach

“There is a family atmosphere and a coordinated approach throughout our Athletics program.  Football has one staff and two teams–2 full-time coaches working directly with players at all levels. We also provide a year-round strength and conditioning program and mandatory study hall for our players–all to support these student-athletes.”

Trent Herzog, Head Boys Varsity Football Coach

“Our players are involved in many aspects of the school…and new players benefit from their close relationships with more experienced players.  So many of life’s important lessons are learned on the field—while it takes individual effort to earn your position, it requires an entire team to achieve greatness.”

Don Jensen, Head Girls Softball Coach for 21 years

“We are a competitive program with two teams that strives to qualify for the NCS playoffs every year.  But most important for our student athletes is that they are developing mental toughness, good sportsmanship, long lasting friendship… and for those exceptional individuals, the opportunity to play at the next level.”

Kelsey McIntire, Head Girls Volleyball Coach
