As the seasons have changed to the traditional “winter programs,” we take a look back with pride at the dedication of our student athletes in the fall.  More than half of the student body joined a fall athletic program in the fall, beginning practices on August 10 – with many athletes transitioning to other activities programs that launched their seasons in October and November.  We have now begun our winter athletic programs in girls’ hockey, boys’ hockey, boys’ swimming, wrestling, and the defending state champions in competition cheer, boys’ basketball, and girls’ basketball

We’re proud of all of our fall athletes and salute their accomplishments — especially these individual athletes who earned accolades for their stellar performances during the fall sports season:

The program, home based at St.  Anthony Village High School, which has the pool, includes swimmers from DeLaSalle and three other schools. Ten Islanders were part of a 48-member team.
