Sports Illustrated tabs St. John's Prep as best high school program in Mass.

Salem News - May 20, 2008

St. John's Prep can boast the best high school athletic program in all of Massachusetts.

So say the good folks at Sports Illustrated in its May 26 issue, which hits newsstands and mailboxes today.

The magazine names the top high school programs in each of the 50 states, and St. John's — whose teams are almost always in their respective state championship races — was given the Bay State's top spot.

"We had three state championship teams this past winter (swimming, skiing and fencing), and we've consistently, over the last 15 years, had about an 80 percent winning percentage in all sports," Jim O'Leary, the athletic director at St. John's Prep, said.

O'Leary said he hadn't officially seen or heard about this recognition for the Danvers parochial school, but was humbled by the honor.

"It is national magazine, and to be considered in there with all of the other great schools across the country is amazing," said O'Leary. "It's a product of all the hard work of the coaches and the kids. I think it's wonderful."
