Red Tornado Athletics

Welcome to MCA Athletics! Mount Carmel Area has always been known for its rich excellence of pride and tradition throughout all of our athletic programs. The athletic department wholeheartedly believes that the key to athletic success comes from a well-rounded experience for all of our student-athletes. This is directly related to the success of students in the classroom, their work ethic, and their respect towards their competitors and coaches. Our athletic administration, staff, and coaches are committed to providing a challenging, yet supportive and caring environment where our student-athletes can reach their full academic, athletic, and personal potential. My goal for our athletes is to spotlight sportsmanship, demonstrate work ethic, and be a positive example of what it takes to be a Mount Carmel Area Red Tornado.
