 Swim Team Sending Thirteen to State Meet

    • The Holy Cross swim team will departed Thursday for their annual pilgrimage to Sulphur, LA to represent Holy Cross at the state swim meet. In order to compete at the state level, swimmers had to swim a state qualifying time during the season.  I hadn’t heard the results but knw the Tigers competed with Pride and Honor.
  • Tiger Cross Country Finishes 4th in LHSAA State Championship
    • On Tuesday, November 14, Holy Cross placed 4th overall in the LHSAA 5A Boys Cross Country Championship. This was the highest finish in 5A competition for a cross country team from Holy Cross in nearly 30 years. It is difficult to properly encapsulate the trajectory of this team, but perhaps this will help — seven years ago, the fifth graders of Holy Cross took their classes in trailers, watching the skeleton of their school buildings rise from the ground.  There was a feeling of hope, of new beginnings; a strong foundation was laid, and upon this foundation young men could build their dreams.   As the school was built, so was Tiger Cross Country.
  • Notre Dame Visits Holy Cross Theology and Science Departments
    • Holy Cross has had the privilege of sending academic teams to South Bend, Indiana during the summer to study and participate in the Science and Religion seminars hosted and funded by the McGrath Institute for Church Life at the University Notre Dame. Faculty members and students have benefited tremendously from our growing partnership with this prestigious Congregation of Holy Cross school. This past Tuesday, HC had the pleasure of hosting our friends from South Bend. Mrs. Patricia Bellm, Dr. Jay Martin, and Dr. Chris Baglow (of Notre Dame Seminary) spent the afternoon interacting with leadership and students. The day ended in a dialogue with the Theology and Science Departments discussing the relationship between the disciplines
