About Lauralton Athletics
Lauralton Hall’s athletic program is outstanding with All-State athletes and winning varsity, junior varsity, and freshman teams.
Our scholar-athletes have been recruited by top colleges for basketball, softball, crew, soccer, track, and other sports; one even was a member of the US Olympic Diving team. Lauralton athletes are champions in even rarer ways, because Mercy values don’t stay on the sidelines. Lauralton athletes are tough competitors and good sports.
The Lauralton Hall Athletic Department's mission is to provide a comprehensive, diverse, wholesome and dynamic athletic program, consistent with the basic philosophy and mission of Lauralton Hall. As an integral part of a student's total education, Lauralton Hall athletics makes a significant contribution to the personal growth and development of those involved.
Lauralton Hall is a member of the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference (CIAC), the body that governs all high school athletics in the state and follows the rules of the National Federation of High School Sports. As part of the Southern Connecticut Conference, we compete with member schools in Bethel, Brookfield, Bunnell, Immaculate, Joel Barlow, Kolbe Cathedral, Masuk, New Fairfield, New Milford, Notre Dame, Oxford, Pomperaug, Stratford, and Weston.
Lauralton Hall is extremely proud of the success of our many programs, but we do not condone a "win at all costs" attitude. The purpose of the athletic program, which includes highly competitive varsity teams, is to ensure a positive experience for those students who choose to participate and to provide student-athletes with an opportunity to learn the importance of ethical behavior, good sportsmanship, positive values and a realization of their self-worth.
The Lauralton Hall Athletic Department staff is made up of professionals who take great pride in their strong concern for the welfare of each athlete. They are cognizant of the tremendous influence of their position and strive to instill the highest ideals and character traits in our students.
