Lions go gourmet with competition

Students sought to impress faculty judges with dishes that included chicken parmigiana, fettuccine Alfredo with chicken, spaghetti marinara, cinnamon swirl French toast, apple cinnamon muffins and s’mores cupcakes.

The Notre Dame-Cathedral Latin golf team qualified for the OHSAA Division II State Tournament in Columbus. To celebrate, the team sits in golf carts as they get ready for an outdoor clap-out from the school.

Clap-out sends golfers to states

The Notre Dame-Cathedral Latin School community spilled out onto their campus last Tuesday afternoon for their first-ever outdoor clap-out to send off their golf team to the OHSAA Division II State Tournament in Columbus.

To allow for safe physical distancing because of the pandemic, the school moved the traditional corridor clap-out outside.

Seniors Zander Gibson, Andrew Perovsek and Devon Skufca joined sophomores Ryley Stefanek and Ben Daher for a golf-cart ride down the hill to the applause of students and faculty, who lined Notre Dame Drive from Lion Stadium to the west parking lot.
