Archbishop McNicholas High School strives to foster the development of strong Christian values through our athletic programs which are highly respected and bring excitement and spirit to our campus.

McNicholas is a member of the GCL Coed Division which continues to be recognized as one of the strongest leagues in the state of Ohio.

As a member in good standing of the Ohio High School Athletic Association, McNicholas continues to compete in Division II or III for state tournaments.  We sponsor 42 teams/squads in 23 sports. Approximately 65% of our students participated in one or more of our sports programs last year.  Help support the Athletics Program through the Blast Off Raffle!
