It’s the second time that the two Chicago South Side high school rivals have met for the annual lacrosse championship game – organized by and in aid of the Chicago charity, Edward Touhy Guardian Angel Foundation, which provides resources to economically disadvantaged students so they can graduate from high schools in Illinois. These resources are aimed at helping the students to build character and self-esteem, allowing them to make decisions that will lead to a brighter future.

The freshman/sophomore lacrosse team came back from a 5-1 deficit in the 4th quarter to win 6-5 over Fenwick in overtime, thanks to Ray McCann’s game winning shot with less than 2 minutes left in OT. Goalie Andrew Lis and the defense were outstanding in their home opener.
The lacrosse coaching staff has announced that the varsity and JV teams will travel to New Orleans for a week in April to take on the Louisiana state champions and runner-up.
Expectations are high after finishing with the first winning record (12-8) in school history last season. “We have improved as a program every year. Playing a difficult schedule has allowed us to play a higher level of competition against teams from different parts of the country,” said Coach Chris Hilliard. “It also gives our players the opportunity to be recruited by colleges that normally would not travel to Chicago. It is a great opportunity for our players and coaches.”
Senior Jack Quinn, captain and defenseman said, “This trip should really give us an opportunity to see how the team matches up with some different and more challenging competition. We have improved so much over the past three years, and I think this senior class can get us where we need to go. It’s also going to give us a chance to grow closer as a team.”
Senior Andrew Jordan, captain and midfielder commented, “We have a great opportunity to grow in New Orleans. Seeing new teams and new playing styles will only help us grow as a team and make us better players for the competitive Chicago Catholic League.”
