Cheverus High School’s athletic and activities program is designed to further the educational development of young men and women through participation. We at Cheverus believe that the competition, camaraderie, loyalty, and respect for others experienced in athletics and activities will serve as a foundation for each student’s continued growth and life-long learning experience. It is our hope to maintain a program that is sound in purpose, reflects the Goals and Objectives of Cheverus, furthers each student’s educational maturity and health and contributes to school spirit and morale.


Congratulations to our Fall Athletes! To watch the entire Fall Sports Award Ceremony, see full video below.

Attention Stag Fans!

We will be LIVE STREAMING our HOME games this fall!

We have created a new Cheverus Athletics Facebook page (give us a like!) and we will be live streaming via Facebook Live to make sure you don’t miss the action. This is a great opportunity for us to expand our fan base. You can share the Cheverus Athletics Facebook page with friends and family across the country!

A reminder to our dedicated fans: in accordance with the SMAA guidelines and the Governor’s Executive Order regarding outdoor and indoor gatherings, there will be no fans allowed at games. We know this is disappointing. At Cheverus, our mission is to educate our young men and women to be people for and with others. Protecting the health and safety of our community is critical during this global pandemic - it is for the common good. We know you love to watch your student-athletes play and have created a plan for live streaming home games so we can come together as a community virtually to support our student-athletes. #gostags

Finally, we have a favor to ask: We have created a YouTube channel (link) dedicated to Cheverus Athletics. In order to live stream from YouTube, we need to have 1,000 followers. Can you click on this link and subscribe to our channel? We will be using Facebook Live in the short-term, but hope to share more video in the future and would appreciate your subscription!

“For Immediate Release - Thursday, August 20, 2020”: Southwestern Maine Activities Association postpones in-person interscholastic athletics until Tuesday, September 8, 2020

On Wednesday, August 19, 2020, the Cumberland and York County superintendents voted to delay in-person interscholastic athletics to a date no sooner than Tuesday, September 8.

This date represents the official start date the MPA announced in July. We are awaiting word from the MPA on the status of the Fall Sports Season and what that may look like. SMAA schools cannot risk a further delay to the start of the school year by holding athletic programming on school grounds for two weeks prior to the start of school (MPA Phase 4 summer conditioning program). By delaying until September 8th, SMAA schools can focus on starting the school year and open schools without the fear of on campus transmission occurring through our own sports programs prior to that.

With MPA guidance due to arrive next week, SMAA schools will be able to determine next steps regarding the fall sports season with a full understanding of what the season will look like. This will allow the association and its member schools an opportunity to develop a comprehensive plan for interscholastic athletics that may have reduced or canceled interscholastic seasons.

FALMOUTH—Playing without two captains, including its top scoring threat, Cheverus’ girls’ soccer team wasn’t having much luck solving the strong defense of host Falmouth Saturday afternoon.

But after a scoreless first half, the Stags, playing without senior Tholia Hallett and junior speedster Emma Gallant, dug deep and took advantage of a set piece opportunity to propel themselves to a clutch road victory.

Cheverus freshman Julia Kratzer races past Portland senior Delaney Darling during the teams’ early-season showdown Wednesday night. Kratzer scored one of the Stags’ three second half goals as Cheverus prevailed, 3-0.

PORTLAND—Speed kills and the Cheverus girls’ soccer team has speed in abundance.

While other teams can attempt to neutralize the Stags’ attack, doing so for 80 minutes is downright impossible and Cheverus, after a frustrating first half Wednesday evening, pulled away from host Portland, beating the Bulldogs at Fitzpatrick Stadium for the first time since 2012, 3-0.
