Congratulations are in order for the Father Judge Cheerleaders, who placed third in the The National High School Cheerleading Championship this month in Orlando!
Father of the Year honors might be going out to 44 buddy Mike Boyle and "Cheer Dad", who accompanied daughter Shannon on a treacherous 20 hour bus ride through the snow to get to Florida. (Get much sleep buddy?) Mike is part of our Ignatian Prayer Group that meets at St. Joe's on Saturday so we got a full report. Unsure whether he had to watch Bring it On I, II, and III on the ride down ;-)
For those outside of Philadelphia -- Father Judge is a boys school in Northeast Philadelphia, so they rely on the talented and hard working young ladies from their sister school Saint Hubert's, and other girls schools in the area such as Saint Basil's .
So way to go Shannon and the entire Crusaders squad. Best of luck with your college decisions.
Proud pops Jim McGugan and Mike Boyle, with daughters Kelly and Shannon.
Thank the Lord that Shannon got the looks and talent from her Mom (sorry Mike, couldn't resist ;-)
