ACCHS band fundraiser May 18

Congratulations to the 22 scholar-athletes who officially signed to compete at the collegiate level May 3. Good luck to these Allentown Central Catholic High School athletes from our football, swimming, boys and girls lacrosse, baseball, track and field, girls soccer and cheerleading teams in their future endeavors.

Shoutout to the Class of 2024 Valedictorian Toby Broun and Salutatorian Sophia Steckel. Toby will attend Yale University in the fall and Sophie will attend Seton Hall University for a dual bachelor’s degree in biology/M.S. physician assistant. Congratulations on all your hard work and dedication to excellence.

Make sure to check the ACCHS social media pages for updates about spring sports playoff games. Several Vikings also stood out during their recent last regular season games.

Duke Ebert placed first in the 1600 meter at 4:31.37, Clark Gulycz placed first with a 57-foot-5-inch shot put throw, Will Haring placed second in the 3200 meter at 10:10.56 and Emerson Springs placed second with a 35-foot-6-inch triple jump in the Zephyr Track and Field Invitational.

This year we are making a joyful noise again. The Diocese of Allentown is sponsoring an online lip dubbing competition for all diocesan schools to participate in. Each school made a video honoring the spirit and joy of Catholic education. Go to www.weloveourcatholicschools.com by May 31 to cast your vote. All funds from voting will go toward ACCHS.
