As the Saint Mary’s men’s basketball team was taking its annual team photo yesterday, a group of 7-8 year old kids politely eased into a corner of McKeon Pavilion to watch. After a few minutes of standing in awe, they were invited to jump in for a memorable photo opportunity.
The 2nd graders from Holy Rosary School in Antioch were on a field trip to SMC as part of their annual college week, an effort to provide a glimpse into what college campus life is like. The students sent letters to their “dream” college and the school organized the trip.
No doubt, the Gaels made a few new fans!
Thanks to vice principal Cathy VanderKlugt for allowing the kids to participate!
