    John Marshall Rocket Family,

    Due to the COVID-19, ALL PARTICIPATION in MSHSL and Rochester Public Schools activities has been suspended until at least May 4, 2020 or the reopening of schools by the Governor of Minnesota.

    Coaches and student participation includes but not limited to, competitions, training, practices, scrimmages, contest, open gyms and captains practice.  RPS Staff, Students and RPS coaches and volunteer coaches CANNOT use Rochester Public Schools indoor or outdoor facilities until further notice.  We ask each student-athlete to use all precautionary measures necessary when training as recommended by the Center of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH).  There are to be NO student group practices and workouts are to remain optional.

    The spring season still pending for May and June, please continue to watch our website for updates.


    Please continue to check our website for up-to-date information  Parents/guardians and students do not email or call the MSHSL staff with questions or concerns, send your questions to Mr. Brian Ihrke at John Marshall High School at

    I will tell you, as crazy and chaotic as our office is, I am missing it all but I really miss my athletes and all of their smiles, questions and of course them just stopping in to check in and to say "hi" 

    I promise you, I will keep you updated as best I can in regards to what is happening with our John Marshall athletic family.  Please don't hesitate to reach out as I am sure there will be many unanswered questions as we move forward.  

    The one thing I can tell you to be prepared for is, if you think that your son or daughter will need a physical for next fall, please keep in the back of your mind that once we get thru this crisis that you will need to get an appointment and get me that physical (emailed/mailed) as soon as you can.  My plan (and hope) is to open up fall registration as we always have on July 1st, but as you know...  it won't let you if the physical isn't on file or has expired.

    I will continue to update this site as I get more info and as we move forward so check back frequently.

    MOST IMPORTANTLY.... Please, please please keep your families and our athletes safe.  I can't wait to see them all again in our hallways, in our weight room, on our fields/courts and them just being kids again!!!  

    You can contact me anytime, my contact info is on this homepage as well.
