Athletics

We believe athletics are an extension of the classroom. Our students join a proud tradition of excellence as players, managers, and fans.

More than 52 teams don the Spartan uniform each year with at least one no-cut sport offered each season. Spartan athletes compete in LaBarge Stadium, which features FieldTurf and a Mondo track surface, a baseball stadium that is one of the finest high school facilities in the area, and the school's gymnasium. De Smet Jesuit has won at least one state championship in 15 of the 19 sports.
