  • Information from Newman Catholic on tonight’s basketball games:
  • As spectators arrive we ask that they remain in their vehicles or they will be asked to wait in the cafeteria until the doors are opened for their game. We will have the roster check in sheet in front of our gym doors, please ask spectators to be ready to show their lanyard at the check in gate and try to bring exact change if possible.
  • At the conclusion of each game we will clear the gym of all spectators, close the doors, sanitize the bleachers, and then reopen the doors for the next game. We ask that all spectators exit the bleacher seating immediately following the conclusion of the game to help with this process.
  • We will be streaming the JV and V games on Facebook Live. If your fans wish to watch the stream, they can go to the Newman Catholic Schools Facebook homepage and choose the events section. There will be a $5.99 charge to live stream the games.




  • Junior High sports will resume today, Friday, 12/11. Updated game schedules will be sent home with athletes today.
