We Are The Home Of The Fighting Irish

Catholic Central of Springfield Ohio has a powerful history of developing strong athletes. Our Fighting Irish Athletics understand that to be the best, you need to work the hardest. We often see multiple generations come through our school and compete as Fighting Irish athletes. We invite you to tour our Athletic Wall of Fame and check out the many sports trophies in the glass cabinets Catholic Central has been recognized as a powerhouse for award-winning athletes for many generations. Our earliest trophy in the cabinet dates back to 1928.

Rich Athletic Tradition

Catholic Central’s rich athletic tradition enhances the student experience for both athletes and spectators. Student-athletes participate in a competitive sports program that teaches them leadership, teamwork, and good sportsmanship. We want to see our students compete as much as they can and enjoy their experiences. Students are encouraged to participate in multiple sports.

Since 2001, Catholic Central High School’s athletic teams have participated in the Ohio Heritage Conference (OHC), which includes Fairbanks, Greeneview, Greenon, Mechanicsburg, Madison Plains, Northeastern, Southeastern, Triad, West Jefferson, and West Liberty-Salem. Elementary and junior high students can compete against other schools in a variety of sports as well. Over 87% of our student population (7-12) participates in athletics at Catholic Central. We invite you to attend our games and follow us on social media.

We keep our Catholic Central Athletics active with 3 seasons of sports.

We offer a variety of sports in each season. This gives our students a lot of opportunities to participate in sports during each season – and have a lot of fun doing so!
