On Thursday, Nov. 21, students from surrounding grade schools competed in the Saint Xavier Annual Turkey Shoot and Family Open Gym. The shootout was hosted in the SXU Shannon Center. This event was open to students under 8th grade.

The students, when paired with someone over 18 years old, are allowed to take part in this shootout to win a frozen turkey or Baker’s Square Gift Card. The cost is $5 per team and that got the teams open gym, arts and crafts, and visits from the SXU Cougar mascot.

They had four winning teams: 2nd grade, 3rd and 4th grade, 5th and 6th grade, and 7th and 8th grade.

Brother Rice student Charlie Fitzgerald attended the event with his parents and little cousins. He said, “This was a great time to become closer with my family and watch everyone complete from the area. I love coming to this event. I come every year.”
