This year, for the first time ever, the entire Sophomore class will attend retreat on the same day. On August 31st the class will be broken up into four groups and will attend retreat at LaSalle and Marianist Retreat Centers in Eureka, the Maria Center on the campus of Notre Dame High School and Pallottine Retreat Center in North County. The retreat is entitled "Virtuous Reality" and is centered on the four "Cardinal" human virtues of Temperance, Prudence, Fortitude and Justice. The virtues are not just religious vocabulary words but are very specific tools that will help form them to be the men God is calling them to be. We will discuss what it means to be a man in God's eyes as opposed to what it means to be a man in the eyes of the world. The students will report to either the Field House, Chapel, Commons, or Activity Center at 7:45am. From there they will depart. They may wear regular clothing provided it is appropriate for a retreat. We will return at 2:40. Lunch will be provided.

Eddie Albarran placed second overall with Jimmy Broyles finishing not far behind. Next up the Griffs head right back to Blackburn for the Webster invitational next Thursday.
