Congratulations to the Eighth Grade St Ignatius Cardinals, who put together an incredible spring, going 9-0 during the regular season. To remain undefeated despite scheduling conflicts, school exams and injuries is an incredible testament to the player’s determination, dedication and desire to play. In addition, the Cardinals were awarded CYO’s highest honor as they were chosen by their opposing coaches to receive the Sportsmanship Award. Winning such a distinguished award in a season filled with so much success was a tremendous honor and proved that — contrary to that famous baseball adage — nice guys do finish first.
