VERY SORRY TO HEAR THIS NEWS, I REMEMBER WHEN THERE WAS
A CATHOLIC GRADE SCHOOL IN EVERY COMMUNITY OF CHICAGO IN
THE 80'S, NOW ONLY A FEW REMAIN, THAT'S WHY WHEN EVERYONE
WANTED TO JUMP ON FATHER MIKE, I COULDN'T, I KNEW WHAT
HE DID TO KEEP ST. SABINA A VIBRANT PARISH, BACK IN THE
DAY THE ST. SABINA GRADE SCHOOL LEAGUE, WHERE I ONCE
PLAYED AND COACHED, ST. SABINA WAS THE PLACE TO BE, SORRY
ABOUT DRISCOLL CLOSING, I PRAY EVERYONE LANDS ON THEIR
FEET!

Sorry to hear about Driscoll...Ah yes, it is spring and lacrosse season. Teams to watch this year will be the usual suspects of Lake Forest (probably the favorite), New Trier, Loyola, and Glenbrook North. Others to watch are Wheaton Warrenville South, Naperville North, St. Charles, Libertyville and possibly Lyons Township.
Should be a great season for the fastest growing sport in the USA!!!!
Remember, friends don't let friends play baseball.

Driscoll had a capital campaign much like Montini -
where is that money? Can it be used to help save the school?
