Developing Champions for Life
The Stone Ridge Athletic Department is committed to having our program serve as an extension of the overall educational mission of the School. We aspire to develop Champions for Life by providing young women with an intentional and physically challenging athletic experience, inspiring not only competitive grace, but lifelong healthy habits and a physical awareness of oneself.
Through our whole child approach to coaching and teaching, complementing the five Goals and Criteria of Sacred Heart education, we guide each Stone Ridge Girl to be the best version of themselves through sport.
At Stone Ridge, we provide opportunities for our girls to learn, participate, develop, and excel, and we celebrate that excellence in all of its forms. Explore our Gator programs & leadership development.
USA Lacrosse Magazine announced the 2021 High School Girls postseason awards—honoring the Gators' historic 2021 spring season—in which five Stone Ridge seniors were recognized as All-Americans and varsity head coach Kristen McDaniel was named the region's Coach of the Year.
The Catholic Standard wrote a lovely article about Katie Ledecky '15 and Phoebe Bacon '20. The article titled "Their Bethesda Catholic schools and home parish are rooting for Katie Ledecky and Phoebe Bacon as they prepare to swim in Tokyo Olympics" shows how their athletic, academic and Catholic faith paths have intertwined throughout their young lives.
