The team currently stands at 9-0, and their season is just heating up. Coming up in October is an All-City matchup against Bishop Mac on the first, and three games against Lincoln-Way schools.


The boys golf team won the All-City title for the fifth straight year on Wednesday at the Kankakee Elks. Senior Tyler Guertin is the individual all-city champ after shooting an 83, while junior Mitchell Hudson finished runner-up with an 84. The girls team has also been successful lately, picking up wins against Beecher and Andrew. Both teams look strong heading into their conference tournaments next week.
