Perhaps you are as surprised as I am to see the name Bill Simmons back as Athletic Director for Bishop Ireton. When asked to work on a temporary basis, I was glad to help and amazed at the scope of the renovations underway. That quickly turned to excitement for the potential opportunities for our school community; not only in the facilities, but for the community of students and families, faculty, staff and alumni. The dreams and hard work of nearly 20 years is coming to fruition in the next few months. We have an exciting year ahead of us!
Athletic participation adds an important experience to young people’s high school years. Education-based sports programs teach life lessons often only learned in athletics, lessons that continue to benefit our young people long after the games are over. I encourage all of our students to look at the many programs we offer as another “elective” in their preparation for life. I look forward to seeing our Cardinals, as well as their families and friends, on Cambridge Road as another school year begins. See the schedule for our fall sports below and check back on our website and social media channels for up-to-date times and locations for practices and games. More than ever it really is GREAT to be a Cardinal.
