October 3, 2013 Thursday D Day
Tuesday is picture retake day. Anyone—student, faculty or staff member—who has not had his/her picture taken for the yearbook this year, must have pictures taken Tuesday morning. Several seniors must also have pictures taken for the yearbook and class composite and were contacted by Mr. Matreci. Students who wish to order packets can pick up the order form and price list in the office. If you are having pictures re-taken, you must return the entire original packet to the photographer. They will begin photographing at 7:30 and will only be here about an hour.

It was a great team effort as the Griffins topped Westminster, winning eight of the twelve events. First place finishers included Garrett Lipic (200IM and 100 Free), Sam Trenter (Diving), Jake Gauvain (500 Free) and Nick Alexander (100 Back and 100 Free). Nick also set a new school record in the 100 Fly with his State qualifying time of 53.66. That is the 7th event for which he has qualified this season. The team is back in action Monday vs. CBC at 6pm at Chaminade.
