Athletes Honored At Awards Ceremony

There is no question that McDonogh’s athletic teams are a force among the competition in the Baltimore area. The 18th Annual Athletic Awards evening held Monday, June 2 in the Horn Theatre showcased the breadth of talent among the student competitors.

Athletic Director Mickey Deegan began the evening saying, “The Eagles had an unbelievable sports year. People often ask how do we do it? What are the key factors to your success? We believe these four ingredients are why: We have great kids who play more than one sport, coaches who love what they do, facilities that are state of the art and mirror the best college campuses…and senior leadership.”

Then she shared the impressive statistics that tell the story:
