November 30, 2020 was national signing day, and Benedictine's Spencer Baird committed to the Fighting Hornets of the University of Lynchburg.
Transfers to Benedictine are new to this situation of brotherhood among classmates of their grade and of the others. Brotherhood and camaraderie with other students is always great to have, especially in times of need, in or out of school. It's something to look back to and cherish when out of school.
On October 23, the president of the Benedictine Society of Richmond, Jesse Grapes, informed the students and faculty of Benedictine and Saint Gertrude high school that an extension was made to the Thanksgiving break.
The end came to the freshman orientation circuit, and all freshmen shall rejoice. A measly 10 weeks later, the freshmen fight one last battle as the seniors make their final stand with the class of 2024. Memories have been made, and freshmen keep on churning through their first year here at Benedictine College Preparatory.
Benedictine held its Veterans Day Review (a Corps event) to honor the fallen Benedictine alumni who died in combat in the service of their country. The ceremony happens on Veterans Day, because that holiday is a day to honor soldiers that served in any branch of the United States Armed Forces.
Benedictine College Prep has its Thanksgiving Break starting Saturday, November 21. This year's break is different, giving the Cadets and staff a whole week off. Many are excited for it, but there is some work that needs to be done first.
The Senior parking situation at Benedictine is much different this year. We have moved from our original spaces and made room for more cars. Though it is much different, it has been easy to settle into the new situation and, for the most part, the Seniors are comfortable with it now.
On October 5, 2020 Benedictine held its first baseball practice for returning players for the 2021 season. Due to the Coronavirus, all spring sports were canceled across the United States, meaning the Cadets only played in their season opener before having to say goodbye. It was the last time some players were on Junior Varsity ( JV) and more importantly, it was the last time that the seniors would play high school sports and, for some, the last time ever playing baseball.
Late Tuesday night, Coach Lilly sent out an email saying that football is back on track. The email said that Benedictine has three games scheduled so far, all in March. Lilly is also looking to add more games in March, late February, and early April. All football players are ecstatic to return to the field and actual football practice. They cannot wait to put the pads and helmet back on and get out there. "It's exciting," said Josh Davis. "I can't wait to start again and hopefully finish the season strong"
This past Friday, November 6, the Benedictine soccer team ended their season on a high note, with a win at home against Atlantic Charter School. The Benedictine varsity soccer team ended with a record of 4 wins, 5 losses and 1 tie.
