3 Up, 3 Down: October 27 Edition

3 Up:


Don’t Forget Your Obligations…

If the sugar rush from Halloween doesn’t keep you up all night, then be sure to set an alarm to get up at a reasonable hour on Wednesday (November 1) to attend Mass in celebration of All Saints Day. Many students who participate in clubs or are on Fall athletic teams are planning to attend Mass in Darby Auditorium at 9:00 a.m. Feel free to join if you are in the neighborhood! Remember – Wednesday is a holy day of obligation!


It’s That Time Of Year…

After a highly successful regular-season campaign thus far, the varsity soccer team enters the postseason hoping to defend their league championship. Next Wednesday (November 1), they will be taking on either Kellenberg or St. John the Baptist in the semifinal round of the playoffs. Keep rolling, Flyer footies!


Giving The Ultimate Gift

The annual Senior Blood Drive will take place next Friday (November 3). Participants are reminded that it is strongly suggested to be well hydrated in the days leading up to the drive. It is also important to eat a good breakfast Friday morning, get plenty of sleep on Thursday night, and remain calm during the process of giving blood. Thank you to all those who will be donating, and enjoy your cookies, pretzels, and juice!



3 Down:


They Drew It Up This Way

This past Wednesday (October 25), the varsity soccer team faced off against St. Anthony’s in their last matchup before the playoffs. The Flyers played well, with the game ending in a 1-1 draw. This is the second even score that the teams have played to in recent weeks, setting the stage for a potentially exciting postseason. Roll Flyers!


Quinn One for the Gipper?

On Thursday afternoon (October 26), Tarmac senior editor Owen Barthel ’19 had the opportunity to interview former Notre Dame quarterback and current CBS broadcaster Brady Quinn. Their conversation touched on football, broadcasting, faith and education. Be on the lookout for the complete, exclusive interview in the next in-print issue of Tarmac, which we are putting the finishing touches on now.


It’s Getting Late Early…

For the first time this year, Chaminade students were dismissed from school nearly an hour early on Wednesday (October 25). Most student-athletes ventured to Cugini’s, Panera Bread, or Chipotle to grab a quick snack before practice. Other students enjoyed the extra 50 minutes at home while the faculty was in meetings. Either way, it was a welcome break for the student body as they reached the midpoint of their first trimester/semester.
