Congrats to our Division Champs! The SRB 7th grade boys Red met St. Monica in the championship game at Notre Dame College Prep last Sunday. The game was incredible and went to a full three sets. St. Monica took the first 29-27; SRB took the second 25-23; but St. Monica ultimately won with the third set at 25-20. The match lasted well over 90 minutes with amazing play on both sides. It was truly spectacular and both teams should be exceptionally proud of the heroic efforts they put into this championship game. Congratulations Bruins!

 

It’s been a long winter, so students soak up the sun during outdoor recess!
