Catholic Schools Week ended with serves, volleys, and spikes at St. Mary Catholic Community School in Crown Point. The teachers faced off against eighth-grade students in the annual volleyball game held this on Friday. For the last hour of the school day, the gym was packed with cheering students from all grade levels who held up signs to cheer on the teachers and the 8th graders. 

The Eighth-Grade Wildcats roared onto the court wearing bandanas and eye black as they tried to intimidate the defending champions, The Teachers. An official winner cannot be declared without an official scorekeeper. However, with Mrs. Mary Catharine Skinner serving ace after ace as well as spiking the ball back into the eighth-graders’ side of the court, it was clear the teachers took the victory. Nevertheless, fun was had by all and sportsmanship was apparent on both sides!
