·         Congrats to the Varsity Lacrosse team for their wins against Georgetown and Blakelock yesterday.  Despite it being their debut of the season, the boys played amazingly well and dominated the field.  Keep up the good work.


·         Yesterday the varsity girls soccer team traveled to Jean Vanier.  The game started off slow with both teams missing on their chances.  A few defensive breakdowns saw the Devils down 2-0 midway through the first half.  A free kick goal by Hannah Treadway pulled the Devils within one at the half.  The team came out hard the second half and carried the play with Courtney Cranmer capitalizing on a penalty shot late in the game.  This gave the Devils a 2-2 draw.
