Catholic Memorial High School has won five Wisconsin state titles and placed in the top 5 at nationals four times. Before Waukesha West began its dynasty in 2002, Catholic Memorial was a perennial superpower at nationals. Scholastic Nick Schumacher's 7-event objective score of 6,617 points at the 2000 Nationals stands as the second highest known objective total of all time. Honors Jon Laux of the 1998 CMH team is one of five Wisconsin decathletes to have scored over 9,000 points. The school's decathletes still hold many of the Wisconsin state individual records.

In 2000, Catholic Memorial's team set a Wisconsin state record of 51,920 points that stood for eight seasons. James E. Taylor of Texas entered the 2000 national competition with only a slight edge over Catholic Memorial: a team score of 52,195 points. A Wisconsin national title was in the cards. Unfortunately, Catholic Memorial slid to 50,786 points and placed third overall, behind Simi Valley of California. Catholic Memorial, however, won the team Super Quiz with 5,430 points.
