Congratulations to the varsity soccer team on their hard fought shootout victory over neighborhood rival Brother Rice in the Pulaski Cup on Saturday. Jimmy Valek and Bryson Roberts each scored a goal in regulation and Aidan Gleeson, Jimmy Valek, Marc Carreon, Joe Shannon and Ethan Fit found the net in the shootout as Tom Walsh made two big saves to bring home the trophy. Thanks to all the fans for your great support at the game and especially for all the donations to "Get Behind the Vest." Between the two programs and the community, we raised over $3000 for this great cause. The team improved to 4-1 and begins conference play this week as we host Joliet Catholic and St. Pat's on Wednesday and Thursday at 6:30.
