Saturday, October 9, the Roncalli girls soccer team won the Class 3A sectional title. Junior Micah Waugh scored the Royals’ first and third goals of the evening. Freshman Summer Fishel scored on a penalty kick for the team’s second goal. With the win, the Royals earned their second-straight sectional crown and the 11th in program history.
“These ladies have raised the bar for Roncalli girls soccer,” said head coach Lacey Hersman. “They’ve scored 56 goals this season, doubling last year’s total and only allowed 14 goals in 20 games, with nine shutouts. They’ve earned back-to-back sectional titles.”
Congratulations to the girls soccer team. We are proud of you!

We congratulate our most recent Students of the Month, who were recognized at a luncheon in their honor Monday.
Last Saturday, the girls volleyball team defeated Perry Meridian to win the Class 4A Sectional 11 title.
“This week we focused on hustle plays and making every point count,” said head coach Christina Erazmus. “If we want to go far in the tournament, we have to go one step at a time, playing aggressive and playing mistake free and I feel like that’s what we’re doing. We know what we’re up against and are excited to get back in the gym and get ready for regional.”
The 2021 sectional title is the program’s 30th overall and fifth straight. The win marks the first time the program has won five straight sectional titles since a string of 12 straight from 1987 through 1998. This year’s title is the program’s seventh sectional title since moving to Class 4A in 2011. With Saturday’s victory, Roncalli became only the eighth girls volleyball program in IHSAA history with at least 30 sectional titles.
Roncalli travels to Greenfield-Central for Saturday’s regional round (Oct. 23). Roncalli will face Brownsburg (26-6) at 12:00 PM in the regional semifinal.

All students received an email from Boost My School. This contains their individual link to share in order to receive online donations. If your student did not receive this email, please email Jeen Endris.
If your student has cash or check donations they may submit those donations (with their envelope) at any time in the advancement office or throughout the remaining collection times during all lunch periods in the CAFETERIA:
(Even when students reach their goal online, students need to turn in their envelopes.) When turning these envelopes in with the student’s goal met, they will receive their Walkathon t-shirt and FREE COOKIE COUPONS for the days leading up to the walk!
Please click here to learn more about Walkathon and the FAQs.
Calling for parent volunteers to help with the walkathon. Please email Jeen Endris if you’d like to get involved.
This year’s Walkathon is Thursday, October 28. (The rain date is scheduled for October 29.) The Walkathon is the only all school fundraiser in which Roncalli students are asked to participate. Every dollar raised through Walkathon funds provides needs-based tuition assistance for Roncalli families.
Want to show your support of this year’s Walkathon, we need gift cards for our students who reach beyond their goal and raise $100 or more in donations. Great ideas for gift cards: gas cards, Starbucks and fast food places. Please drop these by the front office to Jeen Endris’ attention or send them into school with your student.

In this secular society, the true meaning of the Christmas season has been diminished or dismissed altogether. Join Roncallli High School (as well as parishes and schools around central Indiana) to bring back outdoor nativity scenes!
