Thank you everyone who attended or helped with our 2017 TOM KALINOSKI MEMORIAL GOLF OUTING! It turned out to be a great day for golf at Scioto Reserve Country Club, and our 72 golfers and 12 hole sponsors helped raise over $4800 to provide one-year partial scholarships for four of our top graduating 8th graders attending area Catholic high schools (2 boys and 2 girls). Pencil in the 1st Monday of August for future golf outings, starting with Aug 6, 2018!

Also upcoming this school year are our NCAA Bracket Challenge in March, our Night at the Races, planned for April 21, 2018, and our Dodgeball Tournament, date TBD.

If you would like to help plan or run a fundraising event, or for sponsorship opportunities, please contact SMAAFundraising@gmail.com.


FALL SPORTS UPDATE
Soccer had a strong 2017 season, wrapping up with the post-season tournaments on Sept 9. We were one of the only parishes in the Diocese to field teams at every level, and we had four teams win their regular-season league or post-season tournament. And all our children had a fun season competing with their peers from around the Diocese. Cross-Country, Volleyball, Football, Golf, and K-3 Soccer seasons are ongoing. See our Calendar page and go support our children at one of their meets or games!
