C.Y.O. Crusader Athletics….…..Games On?

Please be aware that the C.Y.O. will NOT be able to host our Cross Country Meet scheduled on Monday, October 7, 2019 due to the fact that the H.W.C.D.S.B. advised all participating schools to cancel their buses last Friday.

C.Y.O. staff are onsite today and the facility is open. Cross Country events WILL resume, as scheduled tomorrow – Tuesday, October 8, 2019.

Please note that ALL other Crusader Athletic Programs (Basketball & Flag Football) WILL be played tonight (Monday, October 7, 2019) as scheduled.
