The competitiveness of sports teaches girls about perseverance, time management and commitment; it prepares students well for the trials and tribulations they may face in life.
SHA Goes to PA State Finals After Claiming Fifth Straight District 1A Championship
Sacred Heart Volleyball advanced all the way to the PIAA State Finals before falling to State Champ Clarion Area High School. Their state playoff run capped off a great season, including a fifth straight District 1A title. The Lady Lions roared through the District playoffs, defeating Faith Christian 3-0 in the semifinal and brought home the championship trophy with a 3-0 victory over Upper Bucks Christian. Led by coach Sam Moyerman and co-captains Bella O'Toole '22 and Aly Albanese '23, the team made school history as the first team in any sport to play in a state final. Congrats to SHA volleyball on an amazing season! read more >

As a member of the tennis team, my SHA athletic experience was filled with endless laughs, superlative opportunities, constant words of encouragement, undying support, and tight-knit relationships made with girls of all grades that will last for a lifetime.
Being on the SHOOPS basketball team for the last four years taught me that it is not always about winning, rather it is about forming relationships with your teammates and pushing each other to be the best versions of ourselves both on and off the court.
Being a Student-Athlete
Interscholastic participation helps students gain self-discipline, learn the value of teamwork, and develop a positive attitude, all which enhance their studies and relationships with people, now and in the future. The personal traits SHA student-athletes develop through interscholastic competition are carried over into college and their careers.
- Athletic Association of Catholic Academies (AACA) league: consists of seven private girls schools
- Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association (PIAA): state athletics governing board
These memberships allow us to participate in post-season play, which many of our teams have done. Most recently, Sacred Heart athletes participating in basketball, volleyball, field hockey, track and field and cross country have enjoyed success at district and state championships.
In addition to our athletic facilities, students also have access to a fitness room on campus. Student athletes and non-athletes often use the equipment -- which includes free weights, stability balls, aerobic and anaerobic machines -- for training and exercise regimens. The fitness room is also a great place for our athletes to warm up before practice or a game or to help them recover from injuries.
