Welcome to Iona Prep Athletics!

I'd like to welcome you to the Iona Prep Athletic Department consisting of 15 sports, 31 teams and over 70 coaches.  Last year our student-athletes competed in 545 interscholastic events.  We look forward to another exciting and successful athletic season for each of our young men and their teams. 

While academic success in the classroom is our first priority, there are many life lessons learned by being a part of a team that are equally important.  Working together to achieve a common goal prepares student-athletes for many life experiences.  The games we play this year will provide our young men with opportunities for lifetime relationships with teammates, coaches and opponents.

In speaking with the students during orientation I encouraged them to ‘make history’ as now is their time to shine.

Finally let me express our sincere appreciation to many of you for your efforts and generosity in helping us with our recent restorations and improvements.  They include our new track & turf field, our resurfaced tennis courts and Tully Gymnasium renovations.  Additionally our baseball field renovations include a new scoreboard, batter's eye and bullpens, the Doty Fitness Center and our new digital scoreboard dedicated to the Biaggi Family and the 2012 Varsity Football Team at the Wellington T. Mara Field. Most recently the total renovation of our locker rooms, these renovations include: two separate varsity locker rooms, an additional locker room and a multi-purpose video room.  Our coaches also had renovations done to their locker room, and a conference room was added.  With these improvements and the dedication of our staff, we hope to put each young man in the best possible position to succeed.  We look forward to your continued support of our young men and their teams this year……Go Gaels!!

All the best,  

Bernard Mahoney
Director of Athletics
