On Friday, before students go home to study for semester exams, the school came together to recognize the winter sports teams and have some fun before Christmas break.
(Rally took place after press time)
After Christmas in our Community, the winter sports rally was held place in Sullivan Gym. The rally will acknowledge student athletes in the basketball, hockey, swimming, wrestling, and bowling program. It will also feature a hilarious student-made video and opportunities for students and teachers to compete head-to-head. Like all sports rallies at St. Ignatius, the head coaches of the various sports programs will be allowed to speak and preview their up-upcoming season. Students can expect to hear some stirring speeches to drum up excitement for the teams.
Some students will also take this time to showcase a video they made with the theme of winter sports. Senior Chris Larsen, who worked on the project, said, “It was a great time. We managed to feature most of the players and essentially every coach in the video.” It sound like the video will be fun for the whole school to enjoy.
One thing that is different about this year’s rally will be the absence of the student-faculty basketball game. Instead this will take place in the spring.
But according to Mr. David Sabol, there will still be some form of competition between students and faculty. The rally will be a great opportunity for the school to close out the first semester before exams.
