Last week St. Finn Barr athletes distinguished themselves by winning dual championships in CYO (Catholic Youth Organization) Athletics. The 7th/8th grade girls team played to three sets against Good Shepherd School in Pacifica, pulling through in the final set 15-12. 8th grader Priscilla Cosmas said of her experience: "It's so much fun just to be a part of the team -- its even better when we work together to win!"
The 7th/8th grade boys played on Saturday (several players came straight from our 3rd Annual Walkathon) -- they defeated St. Paul's School 3-2, closing the game with a thrilling penalty kick by 8th grader Carlos Portillo. "We were nervous at first, but through teamwork we were able to win. I learned that you can't succeed without good sportsmanship and teamwork," said 8th grader Mariano Gonzalez.
St. Finn Barr thanks the fans who supported both teams throughout the season, and their esteemed coaches -- Winter Curtis (volleyball) and Carlos Portillo (soccer) for their excellent leadership....Go Shamrocks!
