Ladies Cross County Team Earns 2nd place finish at Districts

Ladies Earn 2nd Place Finish at Districts


DistrictsOnce again, it was cold, it was rainy, it was districts! Eleven teams competed in the division 1 event, but only 4 will advance! Your Lady Warriors made the cut with an impressive 2nd place finish to powerhouse Nordonia. Prior to Saturday, the Lady Warriors were ranked 25th in the state. The success at this competition earned them an impressive climb to 16th place!

Senior Kelly Brennan once again seized that first place finish for Walsh with a time of 20:03, a PR and an overall fifth place finish. Kelly ran shoulder to shoulder with junior Molly Onders most of the race, but was able to increase the distance between the two towards the end of the race. Molly was the only other Walsh runner to finish in the top 10 in the field of 80, crossing the line in 10th place with a time of 21:27, and with freshman Bryanna Renuart right behind her. Bryanna finished in 12th place with a time of 21:31. Junior Abby Lenz and freshman Izzy Horning crossed the finish line in 18th and 19th places earning the Warriors the impressive distinction of being the first team to finish all 5 point earning runners.

The Lady Warriors qualified to compete at the O.H.S.A.A. Regional Competition at Boardman High School on Saturday, October 25 where 16 teams will compete with 128 runners. This group represents the best 4 D1 teams and runners in each of the 4 districts that make up our region. The Warriors will compete against a tough group of teams, and hope to secure another top 4 team finish which would allow them to advance to the O.H.S.A.A. State Competition.

Go Warriors!

Walsh Jesuit's Emma Coley Achieves Perfect Score on ACT

COLEY EMMA 12Walsh Jesuit’s Emma Coley Achieves Perfect Score on ACT

Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, October 17, 2014 Emma Coley ’15 has achieved a perfect score, a 36 on a recent ACT test. Nationally, while the actual number of students earning a composite score of 36 varies from year to year, on average, less than one-tenth of 1 percent of students who take the ACT earns the top score. Among test takers in the high school graduating class of 2014, only 1,407 of nearly 1.85 million students earned a composite score of 36.

ACT test scores are accepted by all major U.S. colleges. Exceptional scores of 36 provide colleges with evidence of student readiness for the academic rigors that lie ahead.

Walsh Jesuit is a Catholic, college preparatory high school and one of approximately 50 Jesuit secondary schools in the United States. Recognized twice as a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence by the U.S. Department of Education (the only high school in Northeast Ohio to receive this prestigious award twice), Walsh Jesuit operates in the spirit of St. Ignatius Loyola, guiding its students to be intellectually competent, open to growth, loving, religious, and committed to doing justice. Founded in 1964 and located in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, the school has a coed enrollment of more than 1,000.

Thank You Parents!

WJ Parent information regarding Ebola virus

Dear Parents, Guardians and Students:

Happy Feast of the North American Martyrs! We had beautiful celebrations to mark the feast of our patron saints and prayed for you as we always do.

In an effort to keep you updated on the Ebola situation, we are attaching the latest health bulletin from Summit County Health Department. It was written by Dr. Margo Erme, a WJ parent. We are most grateful to Dr. Erme for her leadership and special care for our students at this time.

Our school nurse, Mrs. Colleen Kozlowski, has also been in contact with health officials and is using the resources of Akron Children’s Hospital to guide us during this period of concern.

We will continue to work with the health care experts so that we do not send misinformation.

Here’s to a restful weekend,

Karl Ertle                       Mark Hassman

President                       Principal

 

--

From Summit County Public Health:

October 17, 2014

Akron, Ohio.  At this time based on the information collected by Summit County Public Health there is no known threat to the public’s health. Summit County Public Health is not advocating for the closure of schools and the cancellation of events.

Summit County Public Health has released a list of the top things parents need to know about Ebola.

1. Your child is not at risk while attending school in Summit County. A risk for Ebola only comes when you come into close contact with a person suffering from Ebola. The health care worker who passed through Summit County did not visit any county schools.

2. Being near someone who is sick with Ebola doesn't mean you'll get infected. The disease isn't contagious like the flu or common cold. You have to be in contact with a patient's body fluids or blood, and you have to have a break in your skin or have the fluids touch your eyes, mouth or nose.

3. Ebola does not live long on surfaces or outside someone's body. Soaps, detergents and hand sanitizers are effective at killing the virus. Keeping your area clean and washing your hands will help prevent infections.

4. You and your children are really only at risk if you have traveled to West Africa, where Ebola is currently spreading or with direct contact with a person with Ebola disease.  Being around a person (who is not sick) who has been around a person with Ebola disease is not a risk for infection.

5. There are currently no known cases of Ebola in Summit County or Ohio.

Ladies Cross Country Team- Your North Coast League Champs!

cc north coast champsYour 2014 North Coast League Champs!


The Lady Warriors continued their North Coast League undefeated streak Saturday at Cathedral Latin High School. This win marks the fifth for the Lady Warriors since joining the League in 2011. Six teams compete in the Ladies’ Blue Division: Walsh Jesuit, Beaumont, Padua Franciscan, Notre Dame Cathedral Latin, Hoban and Lake Catholic. Our Warriors prevailed with an impressively low team score of 23 when we crossed the finish line in second, third, fifth, sixth and seventh places! Senior Kelly Brennan led the Warriors to their victory when she completed the race in second place with a time of 20:12. Junior Molly Onders crossed in third place with a time of 20:24. The two Warrior freshmen captured the third and fourth spots for Walsh with their fifth and sixth place overall finishes: Bryanna Renuart finished with a 20:28 and Izzy Horning finished with a 20:54. Junior Abby Lenz secured Walsh’s fifth place finish (the last position to earn points for the team) and an overall seventh place finish with a time of 21:00. Junior Caroline Kline was the last Warrior to finish, but secured her spot in the Top 10 with a ninth place finish and a time of 21:41.Thirty nine runners competed, and to have all the Warriors earn Top 10 spots was quite impressive!

All season long, the Lady Warriors battled for that seventh varsity spot (seven girls run a varsity race, but only the first five to finish earn points for the team). The League meet was the final opportunity for the runners to prove to Coach Mathie just who earned, and deserved that seventh spot and would advance with the team to districts. It was senior Jessica Steiner who prevailed when she competed in the girls open race and crossed the finish line in first place with a time of 21:44! Junior Katrina Heil finished in second place and junior Alex Ciccotelli finished in third earning their spots as district team alternates.

And once again, Coach Rose Mathie was named the North Coast League Women’s Cross Country Coach of the Year! Yay, Coach!

The Ladies begin the end of season competitions on Saturday when they compete against the eleven other D1 district teams who will race at Goodyear Metro Park. The race begins at 3PM. Only the top 4 teams will advance to the state regional competition. Good luck Warriors!

Walsh Jesuit’s Dominic Canzone Commits to The Ohio State University

Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, October 1, 2014— Walsh Jesuit junior, Dominic Canzone has made a verbal commitment to continue his academic and athletic career at The Ohio State University. Canzone is the seventh Warrior to commit to a Division I school for the 2015 season, and the third member of the baseball class of 2015 to commit to play for the Buckeyes.

CANZONE DOMINIC 010Canzone, a right-handed pitcher and outfielder for the Warriors is a member of the Warriors 2014 undefeated regular season, ranking 3rd in the Nation for 2014. He was named First Team North Coast League and Second Team Division 1 All-District during the 2014 season. Canzone is ranked among the Top 20 Players in Ohio by Prep Baseball Report with a pitching record of 3-0, with a 0.00 ERA, allowing only one unearned run in 16 ½ innings pitched in the 2014 season. Canzone also posted a .434 BA, with 3 HRs and 27 RBIs in 2014.

“Dominic Canzone is one of a very select few, extremely rare athletes who has an extraordinary level of talent and potential as both a pitcher and position player, said Chris Kaczmar, Walsh Jesuit head baseball coach. “He is a very gifted defensive player, he is a tremendous pitcher, but above all his hitting ability and his exceptional amount of hand quickness is what sets him apart. I so enjoy slowing things down in the midst of a coaching day just to watch him swing. He is a fearless competitor while simultaneously being such a mature, humble, kind, and intelligent young man. He loves the game and I firmly believe his best days lay ahead of him, and we are truly thrilled to see him achieve his dream of becoming a Buckeye. Our program is truly fortunate to have him for two more years both inside and outside the lines.”

Canzone, who intends to major in Business or Sales is the son of Dave Canzone and Amy Miklos of Hudson.

IFTJ-2014-Header-31

Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice (IFTJ)

The Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice is an annual gathering for members of the Ignatian family (Jesuit institutions and larger church) to come together in the context of social justice and solidarity to learn, reflect, pray, network, and advocate together.  We gather each year in the spirit of the Jesuit martyrs of El Salvador, using their lives and ministry as inspiration for discovering the injustices of today and how we might engage in them.  The Teach-In is a place where people are empowered, re-energized, inspired, challenged, and supported by a community that sees faith and justice integrally linked.

The Teach-In is a space for prophetic voices for solidarity with the economically poor, the marginalized, and the Earth who have an openness to an Ignatian approach to faith and justice. This year’s program will feature keynotes from Ismael Moreno Corto, S.J., Director of Radio Progreso in Honduras, Marie Dennis, Co-President of Pax Christi International, and Michael Lee, Associate Professor of Systematic Theology at Fordham University.

In light of the Teach-In gathering on the 25th Anniversary of the Jesuit martyrs of El Salvador, we will offer many opportunities – from prayers, to keynote addresses, to public witness – to reflect on and honor their witness.

On Monday, November 18th, Teach-In participants will take their voices to the Hill to address three very important issues: Humane Comprehensive Immigration Reform, the U.S. Policy Toward Central America, and Environmental Justice.
