SJB Has First On-A-Roll Awards Ceremony in Almost Two Years

SJB had its first On-A-Roll awards ceremony of the year. Students in each grade level received awards in academic subjects, special-subject classes like art and music, for overall improvement, and for Christian kindness and service. Award winners received an SJB On-A-Roll wristband and a Tootsie Pop. The next awards ceremony will take place after the 2nd quarter ends in January.

Boys Soccer Team Wins City Championship

The SJB boys soccer team defeated Holy Redeemer, 3-2, to win the CYO City Soccer Championship on Sunday.

It was a tremendous journey for the age 14 and younger boys. At the start of the season, SJB didn't have enough players to field its own team. The same thing was happening at nearby St. Andrew Apostle, so SJB and St. Andrew came together to make one soccer team. 

The SJB-St. Andrew team had a terrific season with an overall record of 7-2 and a team that improved as the season went on.

In the semi-final game on Saturday, SJB-St. Andrew defeated St. Pius, 4-2. St. Pius was one of the teams that had beaten them in the regular season.

The championship game against Holy Redeemer of Kensington was a hard-fought defensive effort. SJB led, 3-2, at half and held the one-goal lead for the entire 35-minute second half.

The team presented its trophies during the On-A-Roll awards ceremonies Monday morning in the SJB gym.

Congratulations to all of the players:

St. Andrew players:
AJ Fenno
Dijon Fosu
