The spring athletics season was a perfect ending to an outstanding year in Rectory athletics. Although we suffered through some unseasonably chilly weather this season, spirits were high and players worked diligently with coaches to develop the skills necessary to play their respective sports. The more seasoned varsity teams took to learning and understanding the intricacies of each game and experienced playing at higher levels against tougher competition. The coaches have just as much fun out on our playing fields as the students and truly possess a passion for what they do. This was demonstrated at our end of season awards assembly with the many heartfelt speeches and recognition given to our students from their coaches. Check out who was acknowledged with awards at the end of year athletics awards assembly!
