The Standard: Wrapping It Up


By Connor O’Malley ‘22

When people say high school goes by fast, I did not realize it would fly by that fast. Brother Rice only has a couple more days of school until the seniors start a whole new life. I am excited for the University of Dayton, but I am also sad I will be leaving Brother Rice.

I am going to miss all of the friends I have made at this school. Going to games with them after school was the best part of it all. My favorite game had to be the semi-final in 2018 against Marist in football. I […]

Brother Rice held a freshman volleyball tournament that started on April 1, and went through the weekend. The tournament was for the freshman A teams.

Brother Rice’s freshman A team looks like they have some talent even with their lack of height. Rice made it to the championship game against Lyons Township. Both very good teams competed against each other.

Brother Rice had a good game against Lyons. They won a tight game in two sets with scores of 25-23 and 26-24.

“It was a nail biter and the crowd was getting into it,” said John Mikrut.

Brother Rice was in Pool […]

Six students from Brother Rice signed their National Letters of Intent to play college baseball.

The Standard: Crusader Spirit Week


By Connor O’Malley ‘22

Brother Rice had a fun week due to it being homecoming week. For homecoming, the school had a spirit week letting students dress out of uniform and had activities during lunch periods. This allowed the students to have a little fun during the week, with their homecoming dance coming up.

The activities this year were far-better than the activities had in previous years. Each day was something different including bouncy house dodgeball and a basketball game with multiple hoops. There was also a game where two people would balance on a circle, trying to hit each other off. The […]
