At St. Paul’s, athletics are much more than an extracurricular activity; they are an extension of the classroom, providing opportunities for students to set goals, learn new skills, and gain exposure to the community of a team.
Students are encouraged to try out for sports in which they are competitive, but the vast athletic offerings at St. Paul’s create opportunities to compete at both the interscholastic and club levels, depending on the skill and interest of the individual athlete. The structure of the varsity and junior varsity levels allows students to progress through the program while learning new skills and gaining experience. The club sports system provides healthy competition and camaraderie at the intramural level.
Interscholastic teams meet four days a week for afternoon practices, while competition days are primarily reserved for Wednesdays and Saturdays. St. Paul’s is a member of the Six Schools League. The School prides itself on its work ethic and sportsmanship while striving for athletic excellence.

Mina Oates ’20 (Varsity Volleyball) -  St. Paul’s Volleyball faced two #1 opponents last week with a combined record of 22-02 – that is until they met St. Paul’s and we beat them both. On Wednesday against #1 Class B Lawrence Academy, Mina was given the task of stopping the most dominant outside hitter in the league and she did that so well that we held her to less than 10 kills for the entire match. Against #1 Class A Exeter Academy, Mina was given the challenge of stopping both their outside hitter and their middle attack. Again, she proved herself to be the backbone of our defense, limiting the impact of their very powerful offense so that our team could counterattack and earn the win. Although her primary role was to disrupt the opponents’ offense, Mina also made huge contributions to our offense through her serving, breaking down the opponents serve receive and adding six aces to our effort. Nice job Big Red and nice job Mina.
Lydia Martin ’19 (girls varsity soccer)- Lydia has scored 8 goals in her last three games. In convincing team wins over Cushing and St. George’s, Lydia scored a hat trick in each game. This past Saturday, Lydia netted a pair in the team’s 2 – 1 win over Phillips Exeter.  The second one was a brilliant header to secure the victory.  Keep up the good work, Lydia.
