BASKETBALL PERMISSION SLIPS AND SPORTS FEES ARE DUE

Dear Parents,

Starting with the winter sports season, we are using new forms for joining sports teams. The form gives your permission for your child to participate, provides for an emergency cell phone contact, explains requirements for participation and explains the sports fee. Your child will not be issued a uniform until the form comes in and the fee is paid or a waiver is issued. Please download the form below if it did not come home with your child. Thank you, Randy Davies, Athletic Director

Directions to Bosco Tech: Take San Gabriel Blvd south past the 10 Fwy. Just before the 60, there is a “Y” in the road. Straight is Paramount Blvd and left is San Gabriel Blvd. Take either one. If you turn on San Gabriel at the light, take a right on Lawrence before you reach Bosco Tech and a left on Arroyo. If you go straight onto Paramount, you will turn at the first left which is Arroyo. Once you are on Arroyo from either route, turn left into the driveway at the back of Bosco Tech by the St Joseph retreat center. Park in the main lot and walk past the baseball fields to the gym. Do not park inside as you will likely be locked in. We must park behind the school. Access through the front will be closed. Arrive for all games 45 minutes before game time.

 

 

Varsity Football Earns A Spot in the Elite Eight

The St Rita Varsity Football Team defeated NAC Conference Champion, St Francis Xavier of Burbank, 20-0 on Saturday. The win moved them to the elite eight of the 60 team CYO Football Playoffs. The Raiders play Our Lady of Lourdes, the undefeated champion of the Big East Conference of Los Angeles. That game will be played at Salesian High School at 960 S Soto Street, Los Angeles, CA, 90023-1323. Game time is 2:30 pm.

During the season, most of the offensive damage by St Rita was done in quick strike fashion through the air. In this game, the running of Luca Farroni and a strong defense proved too much for the Knights. The win moves the Raider season record to 15 wins and 1 loss.

Directions from St Rita to Salesian are: 210 Fwy West to the 2 south, to the 5 toward Los Angeles. Exit the 5 at 4th Street. Turn left on to fourth street and then right on Soto Street. At this point, I suggest turning left on Whittier Blvd. Go past the Church on the right (Santa Isabel) and turn right on the dead end street immediately after. Park on that street, or enter the lot at the end of the street. We may be able to park at Santa Isabel at that time of the day.

Athletes, Students, Parents and Friends,

We are selling St Rita Spirit Wear to show pride in our school and support for our teams.

We will send home the item(s) that day if available. We have a good stock available, but if we need to order it, it will take about a week. Be sure to make all checks payable to “St Rita Athletics”.
