Rugby: The rugby team was dominant once again in victories this week, as the A Side started it off by beating Highlands 71-0 on Wednesday, March 27. Then, on Thursday, the B Side took down Iroquois 37-5. The rugby team returns to action on Sunday, April 14 as both the A and B Sides take on Cincinnati Moeller.

Lacrosse: The lacrosse team started slowly in their game against Manual on Wednesday, as the Crimsons took a 2-1 lead early in the first quarter before the Tigers reeled off 12 consecutive goals on their way to an 18-3 victory. The team will face some real tests this week as they travel to Virginia Beach to compete in a tournament that includes several top 50 nationally ranked teams.

Baseball: Tuesday’s game against Jeffersontown High School was cancelled for the Tiger baseball team, but the following day they took the field and defeated North Bullitt 13-0. This puts the team’s record at 5-1 as they head into a grueling week including two games against Cincinnati St. Xavier and two games against Firestone High School of Akron.
