We could hardly put out this issue of The Connection without com- menting on the successes of our athletic teams this past year and prior. Besides other accomplishments, personal and otherwise, the Class of 2010 tucked away four (4) State Championships this year, Cross Country, Football, Basketball & Track. The Blue Hawks entered the status of ‘elite’ by being one of only nine teams to ‘three-peat’ in Basketball. These kids were truly a sight to behold as one watched from the sidelines. As a spectator, it was difficult to give the credit to any one individ- ual. The fact that these accomplishments took place over a period of three years would be further proof of that. Rather, what was evident was the mature work ethic possessed by our students. Commitment, hard work, focus, not being complacent, team-driven, extra effort and structure were the attributes displayed. Of course, talent was also dis- played but many others possessed far greater talent but were easily overshadowed by the fierce attitude under which the Blue Hawks played. For those who may not see the connection, these attributes are not limited to our athletic teams. Rather, they are key elements that make up a Catholic education. They are being taught the same in the classrooms of other Catholic schools throughout the nation, just as they are here in Hastings, Nebraska. A Catholic education is ‘special’ in many ways but mostly it teaches you how to live your life for others as well as yourself. Change Service Requested Hastings, NE 68901 111 N.
