Athletics is more than competition. It's about building resilience, instilling confidence, committing to yourself and to your team, and pushing limits to discover your personal best. Agnes Irwin's rich athletic history and dedication to our pre-collegiate student-athletes is a great source of pride for the Owls — you can feel (and hear) that spirit on our sidelines as we cheer them on.
When girls participate in athletics at Agnes Irwin, they build the character and resilience that set them up to win — at anything they set their minds to. Explore the 14 varsity sports that produce strong athletes that go on to compete at NCAA Division I, II, and III levels.
