Congratulations to the Crusader swim team for their third place finish in the Cancer Awareness Invitational with 272 points last Saturday. The Crusaders knew they were going to have competition against their Catholic League contenders (Jesuit, Holy Cross, and Rummel) for their district meet. In the end, the Crusaders finished in third place with 333 points on Monday afternoon at the UNO Aquatics Center.

It was also bittersweet night for seniors Jonathan Bullock, Will Ott, Parker Boyd, Sam Montgomery, Joseph Bordelon, Mark Mulla, and Dillon Rousett and their families at Senior Night 2017. Coach Mark Bordelon along with Coach Jouandot presented each senior to the crowd, along with a corsage for each senior’s mother. Coach Bordelon commented that “this is an exceptional group of senior leaders. They have set a positive example throughout their entire time on the team, but especially this year as seniors.  Though they may be leaving our team at the conclusion of school year, the impact which they have had on our younger swimmers will continue to endure.” Some of these seniors have even been on the team together since starting Brother Martin. We wish them all the best of luck in their future endeavors as Crusaders!

Great job, swimmers, and good luck in Metro!

The Crusaders will compete in the Metro Championship on Thursday, October 26 for 2 p.m. at the UNO Aquatics Center.
