 Tiger Cross Country Finishes 2nd in District 9-5A Championship

 Senior Football Players Honor Faculty Members

  • A few years ago a tradition was started where senior athletes are given the opportunity to recognize a faculty or staff member with the honor of wearing their game day jersey. The students are asked to pick someone who has helped make them the Holy Cross Men they have become. Today, senior football player Kym Wimberly dedicated his jersey Mrs. Jill Miester, Michael Ricks honored Mrs. Kelly Clark and Landen Bates recognized Ms. Julianne Watson.  Congratulations to all of you!
