Be sure to have them pack clothes to wear for practice.
This past week soccer played two games and volleyball will begin their games on Saturday. Please come out and support our teams. I am sure you will be proud of how well they represent Holy Cross. Soccer: The boys played two good games this past week but lost both by scores of 2-0. They continue to give great effort and also show improvement. They had some good looks at the goal in both games but just missed putting the ball in the net. On Monday the team will travel to Elyria for a game with a 4:00 start. They will wear their blue jerseys. Since it is a hour drive up to Elyria the team will be dismissed from class at 2;15 and depart at 2:30. Some parents as well as Coach Cheray will be driving and I think we have plenty of spots to get all the boys up there. If you are driving up at that time you can meet at Holy Cross and follow the group up. Please let me know if your son will need a ride up and especially back.
