ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT NEWS
Mr. Tim Bordenet – Director of Athletics
The winter sports season is off and running. The girls’ basketball team is 11-8 heading into the last two weeks of the regular season. Central Catholic will be hosting the Girls Basketball Sectional this year during the week of January 30th and culminating with the Sectional Championship game on Saturday, February 4. Come out and support our Lady Knights as they look to extend their Sectional title streak to 12 years and make a run at a third consecutive state championship!
The boys’ basketball team is having another strong year with a 7-3 record against a tough schedule. 8 out of 10 games played thus far have been played against 3A or 4A schools. Several exciting matchups will be played at home over the next month before Sectional play starts. We will host the annual girls / boys doubleheader against Guerin Catholic on Friday, January 27 along with county rivals Harrison and West Lafayette in the first two weeks of February.
The swim teams are still undefeated at home as well and are winning several events in each meet. We had several individuals that swam personal best times at the Hoosier Conference meet, which was held at Purdue on January 14. Sean Buckley was the Conference champion in the 100 free.
Our wrestling team is having a breakthrough year. Our team has grown to 18 high school wrestlers and recently won the Lafayette Jeff Duals by defeating Sheridan, Faith Christian, Carroll, and Lafayette Jeff. Our grapplers also finished 7th in the Hoosier Conference meet on January 14. Several wrestlers have a great chance of advancing out of the Sectionals, which will be held on January 28th at Lafayette Jeff.
I would like to thank all of the parents who volunteer to work the concession stands and gates at our home athletic contests. Your help is greatly appreciated and without it, these events would not run as smoothly. For the latest on scheduling and results go to email@example.com or follow us on Twitter at lcc_athletics.
