• Volunteers Needed:
On May 23rd St. Cats will be hosting golf regionals at Ives Grove and needs volunteers. I am in need of 5 individuals to be out on the course monitoring pace of play. Every 3 holes an individual will be stationed monitoring pace of play. If a group would fall off pace you would let me know so we could send someone out to warn the group and follow them to get them back on pace. I would have all materials and directions for you so you know if a group is off pace. I am also in need of 3 individuals as fore caddies on holes that have blind tee shots. Essentially you would stand/sit in the middle of the hole and inform the group on the tee box when it is safe for them to hit. Golf on that day starts at 9:00am and should be concluded by 3:00, however you would not need to be there the entire day. There would be approximately 2-hour shifts that you would be scheduled for, which I would know closer to the day. If you are willing to help out on that day, please contact me at email@example.com. Thank you for your consideration

The same great defense for both teams would hold true for the first 25 minutes of the 2nd half as the Angels would find themselves down only 2-1. However, Oak Creek began to find their offense late in the 2nd half and would go on to defeat the Angels 6-1. Julianna Wilkey scored the only goal for the Angels in the 36th minute on a long goal from the left side. Katelyn Gordon had another great game in the goal box as she was able to stop 20 Oak Creek shot attempts.

Travion Thompson and Issac Cantu led the Angels with 1 hit each. Thursday afternoon the Angels baseball team traveled to Kenosha St. Joseph to face off against the Lancers for the 2nd time this week.

Asher Goodwin led the way for the Angels as he defeated his opponent in singles competition 1-6, 6-4, 10-8.
Softball (3-8 overall, 1-5 in Metro Classic Conference) Walks and errors would prove costly for the Angels on Tuesday night at Roosevelt Park as they hosted Kenosha St. Joseph.

Unfortunately though that wasn’t enough as the Lancers defeated St. Catherine’s 14-1. The Angels softball team traveled to St. Francis on Wednesday night for a conference game.
