“It was a great day that sparked new interests as well as community relationships,” said Emmanel Adlain of the Knights of Columbus.

Holy Rosary Catholic School, located on Jacksonville’s Northside, is part of Guardian Catholic Schools. Maintaining a long-standing tradition of excellence, Holy Rosary prepares students in Pre-K3 through eighth grade with the academic and moral confidence necessary to succeed throughout their lives.

“We’re grateful to our local Knights of Columbus for hosting this fun sporting event. Event sponsors included the Armada, Soston’s Foods, First Tee, and DejaPub Publishing Company,” said Sister of Notre Dame Cynthia Shaffer.
