Girls and Boys BB teams both advance to the State Championship

Fortunately the State Championship Tournament is in Boca Raton this year. Since it is local, we hope that lots of our school family shows up. We play tonight and tomorrow. The time tomorrow will be determined by the results of tonight's games. I will send an email or text alert about the other games. I will also attempt to stream it on facebook Live, if you are able to log on to the Holy Cross facebook page. Please see the link below to connect to the page.

Tonight: The girls play at 7:00PM and the boys play at 8:15PM approximately.

As a part of this service, there will be an opportunity for any of our students (and family members) to be baptized.
