Welcome to Renaissance Athletics! I have been the athletic director at Renaissance since 2012. I am passionate about providing students with opportunities outside of the classroom. I cannot remember my life without sports in it. The memories created from being a part of a team will last a lifetime. Over the years, I have enjoyed sharing my memories with friends and family, and I know that our student-athletes will be able to do the same in their lives as well. We currently offer the following interscholastic sports: girls volleyball, boys and girls cross-country, boys basketball, cheerleading, and girls basketball. It is my goal to continue adding additional sports, so that more of our students have additional options.
I cannot think of a sport that I do not enjoy watching or participating in. My strongest passion is for baseball. My wife and I are current season-ticket holders for the Great Lakes Loons and rarely miss a home game. It is also one of my goals to visit every major league ballpark. Currenlty, I have visited 15 ballparks in the following cities: Montreal, Toronto, Boston, Pittsburgh, Detroit, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Atlanta, Houston, Minnesota, Chicago (Whitesox), St. Louis, San Diego, Los Angeles (Dodgers and Angels).
Now that you know a little about me, I look forward to hearing from you.
(Assistant Athletic Director)
My name is Stephen McConnell. I am the physical education teacher as well as the assistant athletic director. Growing up I enjoyed playing sports year round and am happy to help the students at Renaissance experience the joy that comes from sports.
