Students then progress to Lower School Intramurals, then Middle School Sports and eventually varsity-level competition in the Upper School. Saint Edward’s School fields 36 teams in 18 sports and enjoys an enviable record of success. Athletes with a range of abilities at all levels find opportunities to advance their skills and compete to their full potential.

Saint Edward’s School is excited to announce the induction of Andrew Butz Class of 2010 into the School’s Athletic Hall of Fame. After winning the state individual title during his junior year, Andrew went on to top that by going a whopping 19-0 his senior year, winning the individual state title once again. To cap off this season, Andrew teamed up with Conner Pickering to win the state double’s title that year. Soon after this remarkable season, Andrew was featured in the ever-popular Sports Illustrated “Faces in the Crowd'' section on July 5, 2010. Andrew was a 5-star recruit and ranked in the top 20 nationally. He went on to star at the University of Florida where he was named SEC freshman of the week in January of 2011, later named to the SEC All-Freshman Team and throughout his career consistently beat other high-ranked players. Despite his outstanding individual accomplishments, it is clear that Andrew always put his team first. He noted to TCPalm after receiving player of the year honors for the Treasure Coast that his biggest accomplishment was winning the state doubles tournament with Conner. His coach, Steve Milliman, noted that “he was always thinking about the team and not just himself.” It is a true honor to welcome Andrew Butz to the Saint Edward’s Athletic Hall of Fame class of 2021.
Junior Nombre’s accolades on the soccer field are abundant. His stellar career at Saint Edward’s School has ranked him among the best to step onto the pitch. Junior’s stellar defense frustrated opponents and led to the praise of opponents' coaches. During his 11th grade year, Junior was named Regional Player of the Year. Perhaps the highest compliment an athlete can receive is from his own team. Coach Bill Keating noted that Junior’s teammates “often played beyond their true ability because they did not want to let him down considering how hard he worked.” It was a surprise to no one that Junior went on to a stellar career at Elon College, where he was named co-captain, first-team All-Southern Conference, and Team MVP. Junior even played for a stint in the Premier Development League with the Carolina Dynamo. Also noteworthy, in order to stay in shape for soccer, Junior also turned himself into one of the area's best cross country runners as well, posting several times around 18:00 minutes and helping lead the Pirates to the state meet. Even after all of these accomplishments, it’s noteworthy that Junior continued to give back to Saint Edward's. Coach Keating looked back fondly on the days during Christmas breaks when he would return to practice with the boys, never once letting the players know what he had accomplished. It is a true honor to welcome Junior Nombre to the Saint Edward’s Athletic Hall of Fame class of 2021.
Few teams, if any, in the history of Saint Edwards School did more in one season than the 1989 football team. The dynamic offense put up an average of 38 points per game in the historic season that led to that led them to the District, Regional and Sectional Titles and ultimately the State Championship Game in Daytona Beach. It is more than appropriate, for this accomplished group of football players who fielded the best football team in the history of the school, to be the first team to be inducted into the Hall of Fame in school history. Going 12-1 on the season, opponents had no answer for the ground attack of Chris Bedford, who amassed more than 2,000 yards and 40 touchdowns that season. But as we all know, football is a team sport and This dominance would not have been possible without an absolutely stellar offensive line. A stout defense also kept teams at bay, with most opponents able to muster only a handful of points against the Pirates and not to mention the dedication and commitment of the coaching staff led by Head Coach Howie Decristofaro. It is important to note, that the seniors who were on this team for three years earned an incredible 34-4 win/loss record resulting in 3 District Championships, 3 Regional Championships, a Sectional Championship as the Best Team in South Florida, and a trip to the State Championship Game. The 1989 football team will forever be remembered for what they accomplished. They played the game of football to near perfection throughout the season and serve as a barometer for excellence for all teams past and present. It is with great pleasure that we induct the 1989 football team as the first team into the Saint Edwards Athletic Hall of Fame class of 2021.
Athletic Director Jeff Lamscha shared a remarkable achievement with the girl's varsity soccer team last night. They celebrated his 300th victory by presenting him with a signed soccer ball from the team. Your excellent leadership is such a gift to the school!
