A group of elementary school students is conducting research on the history of our varsity athletics. Librarian Mrs. Mary Burns, brought the students to the high school to view the championship banners hanging in the gym and the trophy cases in the hallway.
It was a proud moment for 5th grader Callan Cappotelli. His great-grandfather is Tom Callan, for whom the annual football award, The Tom Callan Award is given.
