Mr. Larry Rudnicki

We are creating a ‘culture of athletic excellence’ at St. Michael Academy!

Through year-round opportunities to train and compete in a variety of sports, we’re increasing strength and fitness while instilling essential virtues. We believe Athletics, properly and vigorously pursued, meshes seamlessly with our objective to ‘develop the whole person,’ preparing students to navigate life with intention and confidence!

Our Boys Cross Country (XC) team has had an immediate impact – a harbinger of what’s to come in SMA Athletics!  In just its first year as a program, the Guardians finished a solid fourth (of 19 competing schools) at its Division-4 Regional at Gaylord, just 11 points away from qualifying for the State Finals as a team. SMA was led by Junior Adam Paga who qualified as an individual, becoming the school’s first-ever participant at the Michigan XC State Finals.

We intend to maintain this momentum into Basketball season and throughout our expanding Athletics program.  We invite you to join us!

For more information on SMA Athletics, or to inquire about scheduling competitions, please call our Athletic Director, Larry Rudnicki, at 719-650-6149.
