If there’s one thing you can usually depend on in March, it’s that the Bishop Carroll girls’ basketball team is going to qualify for the state playoffs.
At least, that’s usually the case. But fans and observers could be forgiven if — back in November — that appeared to be a long shot. After all, the Huskies had just one starter returning from last year. So, perhaps this was going to be a rebuilding year?
Nope, that’s not the way the Huskies saw it. They started to jell during offseason workouts, and that work translated into another fantastic season at Bishop Carroll. Rebuilding season? Nope. The girls went 23-6, won their second straight District 6 championship, and advanced to the PIAA Class A semifinals.
The Bishop Carroll Drama Club is once again bringing Broadway to the local stage with this year’s production of Hello, Dolly!, a 1964 musical by Jerry Herman that has stood the test of time. The show will be held at Bishop Carroll March 30 through April 1.
Tickets to the show are available at the door each night. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show begins at 7:00 p.m. Adult tickets are $8.00 and student tickets are $5.00. Sold-out crowds are expected, so it is recommended that guests arrive early to be guaranteed a seat.
Congratulations to Maria Schall for receiving the President's Volunteer Service Award in recognition for exemplary volunteer service in her community.

1:1 Initiative Gives Students Access to Innovative Educational Solutions
Bishop Carroll is bringing students a new way to connect to their courses, teachers, classmates, and the world. The 1:1 Initiative just began this year, with all freshmen and sophomores receiving Acer laptops with touchscreen and tablet capabilities. Each is outfitted with email, Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and other useful software. Currently, about 110 students and all faculty have benefited from the program, which is funded by generous friends and alumni of BC.
The PAW Power Hall of Fame Banquet will be on Saturday April 1, 2017 at 6 p.m. at The Crystal Hall (formerly the Imperial Room) in Ebensburg.
