Over the weekend of August 15, 2014, our Lady Cardinals Volleyball Team defeated Wagner, Edison and Goliad to place 3rd overall for their highest finish ever at the Wagner Tournament.  This was a sweet reward for all our players who have worked so hard to get our season off to a great start.  We hope that you can come out and support Your Lady Cardinals in action!
