BMC athletic director's message
Dear Hornet Families:
It is an honor to start my 14th year as Athletic Director (18th overall) at Bishop Moore Catholic High School. As an Alum myself and a parent of four Alumni, Bishop Moore Catholic High School continues to be a blessing and very special in my life. Bishop Moore offers so much to each individual who walks these hallways, with Athletics being only a portion of that experience. The staff and I are constantly looking to be innovative in developing top notch athletes, coaches, and facilities. In recent years we have enjoyed growth in our facilities in the southwest corner of campus, developing Harry Nelson Field at Memorial Stadium, a top flight cheer facility, a wonderful wrestling room, and accompanying amenities. We are constantly challenging our coaches to improve spiritually, intellectually, and technically. Further we are providing opportunities for students to participate in 19 different sports and on 48 various teams (Varsity, Junior Varsity, and Freshman levels). In short, the process of building, molding, and teaching never ends.
Utilizing a powerful partnership between our Bishop Moore Catholic families and a consistent and caring environment at our school, our Athletic Department continues to provide a premier high school athletic experience for our students. During the 2014-15 school year, our program was recognized 5th overall in class 4A private schools and 3rd overall in Academic Team Champion with a varsity athlete average GPA of 3.45 (unweighted). In addition, the Hornets finished 5th out of 85 participating Central Florida high schools in the Orlando Sentinel Super 6 standings. We are extremely proud of our 9 District, 4 Regional and 2 State Championship programs. Nearly 60% of our student body participate in athletics, and 25% are multi-sport athletes.
These results happen because we recognize that interscholastic athletics are important in the educational process. Bishop Moore Catholic seizes upon the opportunity to teach and instill values important to our Catholic and academic mission through the athletic experience. Through a Christ-centered environment we foster ideals of sportsmanship, excellence, and commitment that serve students both on and off the respective venues of competition. Our goal will remain to develop highly competitive teams without losing sight of the lessons of perseverance, unselfishness, camaraderie, and the ability to win and lose with grace.
Please take advantage of the accessibility and “open door” policy offered from our department. We are always seeking to provide the best experience for student-athletes and their families here at Bishop Moore Catholic High School. We appreciate each individual’s athletic journey, without compromising the team concept. Only through great communication can we aid in the inevitable questions, concerns, or feedback that you may have. We look forward to being part of your Hornet experience.
