The Fall sports season has come to an end and many athletes and teams from Diocesan Catholic High Schools did themselves proud with the performances on the court, in the pool and on the field.
The Cardinal Mooney Catholic High School Lady Cougar Volleyball Team fell on Nov. 15 in the 5A State Final to Trinity Catholic High School of Ocala, three sets to two. The Lady Cougars finished their season with a record of 25-8.
Madeline Burt, a student at St. John Neumann Catholic High School, swam her way to two medals at the Nov. 16 Class 1A State Championships at Sailfish Splash Park and Aquatics Center in Stuart. Burt took silver in the 100-yards butterfly with a time of 54.10, and bronze in the 50-yards freestyle in a time of 23.37. Way to go Madeline! Both times were good enough for All-American consideration.
