Boys Soccer

The boys made a deep run in the Marion County Tournament. After a victory on the road at Park Tudor and a win against Decatur Central, the Cards traveled to North Central to play in the semi-finals against Lawrence Central. This one went to PKs and the Cards advanced to the next round. In the finals, Southport came up just short to Brebuef. The boys played extremely well.

The boys drew Roncalli as their sectional opponent. It was a tough evening for the Cards. They dominated play but did not come away with the win.
