As the weather warms up and the flowers begin to bloom, the new season for spring sports quickly approaches!  The Bishop Manogue athletes have been training hard so far through this spring’s rainy and snowy weather. Their perseverance and hard work will certainly show in their upcoming season. Spring sports include: baseball, softball, track, boys’ golf, lacrosse, and swim and dive.  Let’s take a closer look at what’s to come!

Last spring, the boys golf team made their way to state where they earned 2nd place. This season started March 12 but the boys lost in a close game by 1 stroke to Galena.
