The Standard: Edmund Rice Camp


By Ronan Dolan ‘20

A common phrase heard throughout the halls of Brother Rice is that “Brother Rice is for the boys.” The school’s first objective is to provide a proper Catholic education for boys and young men.

The Standard: Tough Homecoming for Varsity, Crusaders Fall to Vikings 10-21


By Ronan Dolan ‘20

Coming off a tough loss against Loyola the week before, the Brother Rice Crusaders needed to redeem themselves with a win on their homecoming against the St. Laurence Vikings.

The 4-2 Crusaders started the night kicking off to Lawrence and the standoff began with a back and forth fighting for a scoreless first quarter.

It was not until the first few minutes of the second quarter in which the Vikings put seven up on the scoreboard.

The Crusader offense responded with a drive down the field and freshman kicker, Jack Welniak, lined up at the 18 yard line and made the […]
