The History

of the Lions

A Tradition 

in Sports

    Back in 2005, St. Joseph's Boy's Academy migrated to Illinois, and became the school we know and love: Notre Dame de La Salette. When we moved, we brought with us our favorite sport, Rugby. Over the years La Salette has experienced many different sports: soccer, softball etc., but Rugby is one of the only ones that truly stuck, because it teaches s the qualities of a true athlete: sportsmanship, respect, and a sense of union with you team. Here are the famed games, tournaments, and players that have engrained this sport into he La Salette Legacy.  

2006- 3rd in Midwest Championship, and Second in the Nation at the National Championship. 

2007- After taking third place in the Regionals, we went on to the                      National Championship and won Second in the Nation.

2008- we managed to keep our status of Second in the Nation.
