By Justin Jefferson ‘20

It was a hard fought win by the Brother Rice Crusaders basketball team last Tuesday, winning the game in triple overtime against Richards 85-83. The Crusaders are now 13-6 starting the season.

Sophomore Coach Duffy said,  “The team lost their composure for a little while, which caused them […]

Coming from a long line of professors and teachers, Mr. Malopsy is following in the path of most of his family members. His mom is a former teacher and currently is an administrator in School District 205; he has two aunts that are college professors; and two uncles who are administrators for different districts in Illinois.

The Standard: Crusader Shadow Day


By Justin Jefferson ‘20

Friday was an eventful day for the Crusaders. They hosted over 175 shadows.

Shadow Matt Phelan said, “This is one of the best shadow days I ever had. I’ve been here before, and it hasn’t been like this. They didn’t have the same thing as they did in the past.”

The pep rally was also a fun part of the day. The pep rally started off with an inspirational speech by former NFL player Tim Terell. He was able to get the shadows and students hyped for the Marist-Rice game later that night.

The four houses also faced off in competition […]
