Sacred Heart holds Cardinal Invitational

Sacred Heart Catholic School continued its trend of uniting with other rural Catholic schools for the second annual Cardinal Invitational on May 11 at the Shawano Community Middle School track.

Over 135 students and 35 total volunteers participated in this all-day track and field event. Besides Sacred Heart, there was also participation from All Saints Catholic School in Antigo, and St. Rose St. Mary School in Clintonville.

The event was organized by Sacred Heart’s middle school teacher and athletic director Scott Marohl. His goal in organizing this event was to give all rural Catholic middle school students within the Diocese of Green Bay an opportunity to join together, be more active, and promote fellowship amongst each other.

This event was another way that Sacred Heart intentionally lived its mission to, work cooperatively to ensure the optimum academic, spiritual, physical and social growth of every student.

Students had the opportunity to participate in various track and field activities such as the 50-yard dash, 200-yard shuttle, 400-yard run, rope skipping, standing long jump, shot put, softball throw, and a girls and boys softball tournament. Each activity yielded winners who received either ribbons or a trophy.

Results were not available by the Leader’s press time.
