of the Lions
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 the qualities of a true athlete: sportsmanship, respect, and a sense of unity with your team. Here are the famed games, tournaments, and players that have engrained this sport into the La Salette Legacy.
