With leadership comes great responsibility.

Tours at the Brother Rice Open House can be quite stressful on the NHS students responsible for guiding them. I find the best way to combat this pressure of giving off the best impression possible for Brother Rice is to simply be yourself.

To start the morning, I get cleaned up, put on my suit and tie, and head over to BR.

As a tour guide, you are first introduced to your family in the main gym lobby. You will be tasked with getting them through registration and showing off the best parts of our school […]

Your newly crowned underdog Crusader football team took on the South Elgin Storm this past, frigid Saturday evening.

After a shaky 5-4 regular season, competing against some of the strongest teams in the state, the Crusaders have posted back-to-back no doubt playoff wins.

Saturday, at home, they took down the Storm by a score of 25-7.

Behind what some would call a new offensive showcase for the men in maroon and orange is sophomore Jack Lausch, rushing for two touchdowns in this weekend’s contest. The third touchdown was scored by running back Willie Shaw who scampered in to seal the deal.

The Brother Rice Crusaders gathered for the 2019 Homecoming Dance this past Saturday.

Students attended the semi-formal dance in a plethora of different styles ranging from suit and tie to three piece suits. Every Crusader was looking their finest.

At the dance, there was a great array of music provided by DJ Thunder as always.

I enjoyed jumping around in the mosh pit with my friends just as much us the next guy, but for some students like Billy O’Hara, this is their favorite time of the year. “That dance was the best of my four years and I expected nothing […]

The surging Crusaders met their tough conference opponent Providence Catholic on Tuesday Oct. 8.

In 2018, the Crusaders finished at 2-1 in their crossover games, which put them in a situation to be relegated to a lower division if they did not go 3-0 this season.

“We know what we need to do; it’s not complicated. We need to go out there and win and nothing less,” said head coach Matt Prunckle.

Coming into the match at 2-0 in crossover games, the Crusaders knew what they needed to do in order to avoid relegation – win.

Brother Rice came out hot as […]
