Growing up, one thing I distinctly remember was the joy I felt when we were in a crowd of people and my dad would let me sit on his shoulders. At the time, I didn't know why, but I loved that experience. Today, I realize I loved it because it made me feel big. I could see farther and know more than I could walking down in the crowd. I had an inner strength that was only possible because I was on the firm foundation of my father's shoulders.

All spring sports student-athletes and their parents are invited to our new all-sports banquet on Tuesday, May 29 from 7:00pm-9:00pm. The program begins in the Goodwin Gym with special recognitions by Athletic Director Sam Reed and highlights of each team's season by our head coaches. The Kennedy Catholic Booster Club will serve root beer floats in the courtyard/cafeteria, and then each team will gather in separate areas of the school for their traditional team banquet and individual awards. This is also the perfect time for athletes to turn in their clean uniform to their coach. See you there!
