Although the varsity lost 14-12 to St. Margaret, Narberth, coach Leo Carlin said he was very proud of the boys “even though a lot of our regulars were out due to injuries, the kids on the field still managed to almost win. It was a great season.”##M;[read more}##

The junior varsity won the Coaches Bowl, defeating Sts. Simon and Jude 33-13. “The junior varsity is a group of boys who are, for the most part, outsized and out-gunned,” Carlin said. “They play for each other.”
