ST. PAUL ATHLETICS IN THE NEWS
— Nate Stellmach ’22
“At St. Paul, the students, teachers, and administration worked tirelessly to ensure that all of the former Sacred Heart students felt welcomed and included in the St. Paul family. Relatively quickly, the distinction between the former Sacred Heart students and the St. Paul student body disappeared, and we became one group.”
Students showed us how they spent their Sunday in the fresh powder snow. They had to show off their creativity and their Falcon pride. The best and most creative photos win gift cards.
- SP junior Mackayla Baxter won’t let Winter Storm Bob stop her preparations for Tuesday’s NVL Indoor Track and Field Championship.
- Vanessa Visconti ’22 knows you need to thoroughly clean off your car before going for a drive.
- No days off for SP swimmer Amelia Badzioch ’22. At 23 degrees, hopefully she’s only getting in a quick practice.

GAME DAY IN THE CLASSROOM
More student-athletes with athletic contests this week recognized administrators, teachers, and staff who have been influential in each of the student-athlete’s successes. Each educator displayed in their classroom the jersey (or other apparel) of the student-athlete who honored them. Be on the look out for more teams swapping jerseys next week. #TeachingToLearn #CoachingForLife
