Athletics

At Marlborough, 100% of our athletic resources are devoted to girls.

With 33 teams for 12 different sports, that means that every student has the opportunity to train, compete, and contribute at a level that’s right for her.

Research shows that more than half of female executives were once student athletes, and at Marlborough, it’s easy to see why. In addition to the mental and physical health benefits, our student athletes develop a strong foundation of important life skills - including teamwork, leadership, and resilience - that will serve them well in college and career.

The education of a Marlborough student doesn’t stop when she leaves the classroom. Our student athletes – at all levels - learn the life lessons of teamwork, leadership, and resilience that both complement and reinforce their well-rounded academic experience.

Facilities

With the completion of a $27 million athletics facility upgrade in 2016, students have access to an expanded Booth Field, the Caryll Mudd Sprague Aquatic Center, and a fitness facility in addition to tennis courts and Combs Gym. Made of a durable and sustainable synthetic surface, Booth Field provides a full-sized soccer field for home games.The Caryll Mudd Sprague Aquatic Center includes a 36 x 25 yard pool for competitive swimming and developing water polo program. The Center also includes a spectator pavillion, an electronic touch-pad timing system with LED scoreboard, solar heating panels for an energy efficient pool heating system, and increased deck space for dry-land training. The fitness facility compliments the Strength & Conditioning Program as well as enhances campus life for students not currently on an in-season team .

I always tell the girls on Athletics Council that we are the "spirit squad" for the Marlborough community. We dress up in the mascot costume, coordinate pep rallies, and conclude each season with a tribute to the hard work of the season's athletes with a banquet. This role has taught me to be the "spirit squad" in other parts of my life. I've learned to cheer on my teammates, classmates, and friends constantly, realizing how helpful positive encouragement is to those around me.
