ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT NEWS
Mr. Tim Bordenet, Director of Athletics
As the calendar turns to March, March Madness is in high gear for our boys’ basketball team. Our Knights own the longest current consecutive Sectional Championship streak in the state with an amazing 16 in a row. Our boys won the Tri-Central Sectional with an 83-43 victory over Clinton Central and a thrilling 59-53 victory over Clinton Prairie in the championship game on March 4. In the Regional, our Knights defeated North Vermillion 67-30 and Liberty Christian 69-54. On March 18, our boys will play Gary 21st Century at Lafayette Jeff. Game time is 1:00 p.m. We need a large and loud crowd to help send our boys to the state championship game!!
March 4 was also a special day for freshman Maia Bell. She competed in the Valparaiso Gymnastics Regional. Maia’s years of training paid off this year as she became the first Central Catholic gymnast to ever compete in the IHSAA tournament. To top it off, she advanced out of the Lafayette Jeff Sectional and gained valuable experience at the Regional. Congratulations Maia on being a pioneer!
Our high school winter sport athletes were honored and recognized at our winter sport awards night on Monday, March 6. The evening was a great way to celebrate a memorable year. The Central Catholic community is proud of all of our student-athletes!
Now is the time for athletes to start planning for their yearly athletic physicals. As a reminder, any physical completed after April 1 is good for the 2017-2018 school year. Physical forms will be available at www.lccathletics.com or in the school’s front office and athletic office prior to April 1. To participate in summer workouts, a completed physical must be on file before participation can begin. Central Catholic will host a physical night this spring on May 1. To sign up, please call (765-474-3524) or stop in the athletic office.
With the warm temperatures that we have been having, it is not too early to start thinking about summer. Central Catholic summer camps that is. Forms and camp information are available at www.lccathletics.com and in the athletic and front offices.
