  • Coach’s Comment: The measure of success is not whether you have a tough problem to overcome but whether it is the same problem you dealt with last school year.


  • In a riveting competition during lunch in the courtyard, The A-K group won the Race for Survival with an average time of 38.6 seconds, beating L-Z by almost ten seconds. Ninth Grader Garrett Griffin led the A-K effort with a whopping five runs through the relay race with times below 40 seconds. L-Z also had memorable runs with a very special effort from two students on crutches. The competition is not over. Head out to the courtyard today at lunch to launch the vaccine off the third floor balcony. Represent your half of the school and take back Jesuit.
