Fall Sports Banquet
We are excited to start a new tradition of having our seasonal sports banquets at the school. The reason for the change was to foster a greater sense of community among all sports programs, to increase the attendance at the banquet, and to allow for a greater administrative presence by having one multi-sport banquet. Our hope is that all student-athletes will attend the banquet to be recognized for the time and effort dedicated and the sacrifices made this fall.

For those curious about the format of the banquet, we will all start in the cafeteria for dinner at 5 pm (doors open at 4:30). During dinner, we will recognize our team GPA winner, our Academic All-Conference recipients, and our All-Conference recipients. Once dinner is over, we will breakout by sport, and each team will conduct their own separate banquet and presentation of letters and awards. Once your student’s sport is done, you are free to leave.

We hope to see all student-athletes and their families here for the banquet. We have extended the deadline to turn in forms until tomorrow, Thursday, November 8th. You can download the form here. Please turn forms into the athletic office. Due to space and food considerations, no walk-ups will be accepted!

Please contact the athletic office at 708-458-6900 x256 if you have any questions.
