The Big Wins!

The crowd was large and loud for the annual US Girls Varsity Basketball and US Boys Varsity Basketball double-header at DePaul University's McGrath-Phillips Arena. The LS, MS and US were well represented in the crowd which made for a great high school basketball environment. The Girls toppled Chicago Hope Academy (59-53) in a very competitive game to start the evening and get the crowd amped up. The Boys had another close call with their rivals down the street as the second game of the evening went into overtime. Junior Alec Kotler scored a clutch three-point shot with 3 seconds to play in overtime to seal the game for the Romans 55-54. The crowd went wild and all the Romans went home with smiles on their faces. This is the 2nd time this season that the Romans have clipped the Colonels at the buzzer to win the game. Junior Charlie Moss hit a shot as the clock ran out to clinch the victory back in December. And we got it all on video, check it out!

Congratulations to the varsity girls volleyball team and coaches! The team received the prestigious Sportsmanship Award at the IHSA Finals. At each IHSA state finals, a committee consisting of Sportsmanship Advisory Committee members, IHSA staff members and other tournament personnel grade each participating school's coaches, players and fans based on a rubric developed by the Sportsmanship Advisory Committee. This is the first time Latin has earned this award in its long history of athletic accomplishments. Earning a "Do What's Right! State Final Sportsmanship Banner" is difficult and a huge honor. Combining both top results on the court (4th in state!) and recognition for honoring the game (state final sportsmanship banner!), our volleyball coaches have realized the ideal goal of high school sports.
