Please join us in congratulating Heidi Muhr as Moreau Catholic High School's 2017 Hayward Hero. Heidi has positively reflected our Holy Cross values and mission through her work with athletics, students, teachers, alumni, and our parent community. As our Hayward "hero" Heidi will represent our Mariner family at the 8th Annual Hero Dinner on May 4th.
In an exciting overtime game, the Boys basketball team won the battle of Holy Cross over St Francis and punched their ticket to the State championship game. Damari Milstead '17 and Jullen (Booda) Ison '17 are the only two players who played in the first trip to state 4 years ago. The team is excited for the chance to add a state title to their already impressive season. They will put their 21 game win streak on the line against Esperanza from Anaheim at 4:00 pm on Saturday, March 25th in Sacramento. Congratulations to the team and coaches and all who traveled to St. Francis to witness the win. Go mariners!!
