Congratulations St. Norbert Fall CYO Sports Teams!
It was an action-packed Fall for St. Norbert CYO field hockey, soccer, and cross country teams.
The St. Norbert’s/St. Pat’s Varsity field hockey team clinched the Archdiocesan Field Hockey Championship, defeating St. Joe’s 2-1 in sudden death double overtime. Earlier this Fall, the Varsity team won the Acorn Tournament, an annual event that raises money for charity.
The players took some time off the field to participate in a special service project, working with Mrs. Lori Myers to prepare lasagna formaggio in the SNS kitchen. The team made five large pans of lasagna to donate to a local family and area shelters.
The JV soccer team, seeded #4 heading into the playoffs, beat #1 seed St. Aloysius 4-3 in the semi-finals, and then defeated Saints Simon and Jude 2-1 to win the Region 17 CYO Championship.
The Varsity team finished the regular season strong with a record of 6-1-2, and advanced to the playoff quarter finals.
This Fall the St. Norbert Cross Country team’s overall average mile split improved from 9:52/mile to 8:36/mile over the course of eight races. Several runners achieved below 7:30/mile on the demanding, historic Belmont Plateau cross country course in Fairmont Park.
Eighth-grade classmates Charlotte F and Quinn O posted personal records during the season. Quinn finished 15th and Charlotte 38th out of a field of 91 runners in the Philadelphia CYO Championship meet. Overall the team had a strong showing in the Championship meet, including kindergartners Olivia D and Sam F finishing 1st and 8th respectively in their age groups.
Team members also participated in the Regional Cross Country Championship in Bucks County and the National Cross Country Championship in Nashville.
Congratulations to all Fall CYO sports players and coaches on their exciting seasons!
