2016 Football Season News
Pasta Dinner Night:
Thanks to everyone who came out to our first annual Pasta Dinner night. It was a huge success! Thanks to our sponsor The Express Italian Eatery in Westdale for making such an amazing meal. Thanks to the players who were the food and beverage servers as well as clean up crew. Special big thanks to the Coaches for leading the charge and making tonight a special night.
We had a few special guests in attendance tonight...
- Mr. Len Gargarello was the head coach of both of our current head coaches. Mr. Gargarello was a teacher at St Mary's and he coached the Crusaders from 1971-1974 and then again from 1983-1994.
- Mr. Courtney Stephen is a Defensive Back with the Hamilton Ticats. He was very gracious and took several photos with players, families and Coaches too!
