A Brief Sports History . . .
Cathedral has enjoyed a proud history of vibrant and successful athletic programs. For years, Cathedral football and basketball dominated the Hamilton and Golden Horseshoe area. Both teams have won multiple championships and have also succeeded at GHAC and OFSAA. In more recent years, Cathedral has become a powerhouse in a number of different sports including rugby, soccer, volleyball, and more!
Cathedral has long been represented by the "Gael", a Gaelic warrior of the Dark Ages native to Scotland and Ireland. Historically, the Gaels were a distinct ethnic group with their own culture and dialect of the Gaelic language. The Gaels were known for their fierce, competitive nature and were a force to be reckoned with after the Roman desertion of the British Isles in the fifth and sixth century. Cathedral is proud to be associated with such a noble group of warriors!
