Celebrating our students' diverse gifts

The boys soccer team beat third-ranked Cardinal Ritter, and made it to the Sectional championship game.

Fall Greetings!

Our students are taking a deserved break after weeks of studying and tests as the first grading period comes to an end.

Congratulations to them and to our teachers for all the hard work in the classrooms so far this semester.

Meanwhile, many of our student-athletes are embracing competition on the fields and courts during their break from classes.

  • Last weekend, our boys soccer team finished an exciting season, including a 2-1 victory on Sept. 24 over Cardinal Ritter, which was ranked third in the state. The Crusaders made it to the Sectional championship last Saturday before losing to Central Christian Academy.
  • The volleyball team capped off its regular season this week with a sweep over Herron and heads to the Sectionals against Broad Ripple on Thursday at Speedway High School.
  • The boys tennis team came in second in the ICC conference this season.
  • We honored 60 senior student-athletes of fall sports and band members during Senior Night before Friday's final regular-season football game. These young people have successfully balanced practices and games with studying and books during their four years at Scecina.

Congratulations to all of our fall sports athletes and good luck. Our athletic teams contribute to the overall success of our school and our students by instilling the values of hard work, preparation and perseverance that young people need to be successful in life.

God has given our students many diverse talents, and we are called to help them develop and be good stewards of those talents. Next week, our Advanced choir and Orchestra, under the direction of Donnie Glowinski, will present their second annual Sacred Music Festival at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 21, at Our Lady of Lourdes Parish. We hope you can make time for this uplifting musical experience.

Thank you and God bless,

Joe Therber
