Brophy has beaten St. Mary’s in football for the past six years. This season, the Broncos looked to extend that streak to lucky number seven.
Imagine packing into the gym to energize the team, the smell of fresh beef hitting a grill and the prickle down your spine when hundreds of warriors jubilantly rush onto a field after a great victory.
When Brophy plays against St. Mary’s Friday students can experience all of this and more.
There was no shortage of points in Friday night’s Brophy football game; the Broncos scored 28 points in the first quarter alone and cruised to a 41-9 victory over the Gilbert Tigers.
The National Scholastic Press Association recently announced two national accolades for The Roundup.
The NSPA named The Roundup as a finalist for the national “2009 Newspaper Pacemaker” award, which recognizes student newspapers for overall excellence.
In addition to this staff honor, Matt Stanley ’09, recent graduate and last year’s co-editor in chief, was named one of six finalists for the NSPA national “Sports Story of the Year” award for his article “Brophy set to join new region” in last December’s edition.
