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.

 

Raider Spirit Wear Available

Athletes, Students, Parents and Friends,

We are selling St Rita Spirit Wear to show pride in our school and support for our teams. These shirts can be worn on special days at school, to practice, to our games and can be worn in lieu of the PE shirt on the West Campus. They can also just be worn around town.

You can purchase items in the office this week only. After that the order form that can be downloaded below must be used to make a purchase (you may use it now as well). 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”.

Women’s v-neck shirts are in sizes adult small through adult large for $13. Other sizes can be ordered. Visors with an embroidered “St Rita” on the front are $15.
