Varsity Champions

The St. Thomas Aquinas 5th grade, JV and Varsity Wildcat football teams made history this past weekend by capturing championships in all three divisions as part of the Dallas Parochial League (DPL) Catholic Bowl.  The DPL is comprised of almost 30 Catholic schools in the Dallas area, and the Catholic Bowl was held at Roffino Stadium at Bishop Lynch High School on Saturday, November 23. In the 53-year history of the DPL, no school has ever won all three championships in the same season. For the St. Thomas Aquinas Varsity squad, the victory represented the first Varsity championship since 1975.

The 5th grade team, head coached by Steve Ramos, defeated St. Rita by a score of 12 - 6 to cap its championship season and finish with a record of 8 wins and 2 losses. The JV team, head coached by Mike Davis, defeated St. Mark by a score of 32 - 0 which completed a perfect season of 11 victories and no losses. The Varsity team, head coached by Mike Simmons, rallied from behind in dramatic fashion in the final moments of the game to upend St. Rita by a score of 14 - 12, thereby preserving their own perfect season with 11 victories and no losses.
