Mount St. Mary Academy held the Opening Pep Rally on August 30th to kick off fall sports — cross country, volleyball, tennis and golf — and start off the school year with a show of school spirit. Costumes, chants and a class theme for each grade level and a performance by the seniors united the student body as classes competed for the spirit stick at one the biggest pep rally of the year.
Freedom Freshmen, Superhero Sophomores, Holly Jolly Juniors, Slam Dunk Seniors, MSM spirit squads, athletic teams and Student Council kept the energy going and started the school year with a “Slam Dunk!”
Athletic Team Schedules may be viewed on the MSM School Calendar.

Learning at Mount St. Mary Academy doesn’t stop just because it’s summer time! This week at Volleyball Camp our campers learned and developed volleyball skills with our MSM Belles as their guides. Parents, we hope we see you back this fall for one of the Belles volleyball games, where kids with a camp t-shirt or their team’s uniform will get in free!
Another Belle has signed to play basketball at the collegiate level. Kara R. will be playing for the Ouachita Baptist Tigers in the fall. Kara played four years as point guard for the Mounties and Belles. She was a two-year varsity starter and played in the Central Arkansas Showcase game.
Kara is the third Mount St. Mary basketball player this spring to commit to continuing her athletic career at the college level. Mary R. signed to continue her academic career and play basketball for Hendrix College on April 18 and Lizzie A. signed with Lyon College on April 25.

The Belles delivered a mighty victory against Fort Smith Northside at the Pink Out volleyball game on October 4. In front of a crowd of parents, classmates and friends decked out in pink to support breast cancer awareness, the varsity team battled it out to a fifth-set win that upset Northside’s four-way tie for first in the 7A Conference. Fort Smith Southside lost on Tuesday as well, so the Belles are set to play the two remaining contenders, North Little Rock and Conway, on October 6 and October 13 at home.
