God of mercy, you sent Jesus as a light to uncover what is weak and sinful in our lives and bring out what is upright, strong, and good. Deepen your light within us, and help us be your instruments of healing, wholeness, and life to others, especially those who are less fortunate than us. We ask this, in your name, Amen.

Thank you to all the Tigers who came out to our Tigers for Christ meeting this morning. Here is the first clue for next week's guest speaker. This individual graduated St. X as the school's all-time leading rusher, with 4,008 yards, and all-time leading scorer, with 75 touchdowns. During his three-year career as a starter, the Tigers went 37-4 and won the State Title in 2004. The first eligible student to email Coach Cotty with a correct guess will win a Tigers for Christ t-shirt. Tigers for Christ will meet Tuesday, February 14 at 7:15 a.m. in the auditorium. All Tigers are welcome.
This past weekend, the Track and Field team competed in the Louisville Indoor Games, which was the largest event at Norton Sports and Learning Complex has ever hosted. Yet again every athlete that stepped on the track produced quality performances. Highlights started early for the team with Christian Coleman running the 19th fastest time in the nation for the 60 Meter Hurdles. His 8.02 earned him first place, a school record, and a meet record. John Riley Kaufman placed 8th in the same event. The St. X 4X200 of Cooper Brown, Owen Estes, John Riley Kaufman, and Jack Graves, took 6th overall with an impressive early season time of 1:34. That time qualified the 4X200 to Adidas Nationals. Also qualifying for Adidas Nationals in the Freshman Elite category was Anthony Passafiume in the 400 Meter Dash. The 4X800 Relay Team of Thomas Weber, Anthony Passafiume, Isaac Baker, and Hobs Ashburner took 3rd. Christian Coleman also took 3rd in High Jump. The track and field team is excited about its early season performance and looks forward to returning to the track this Friday and Saturday at the prestigious Eastern Indoor, held again at the Norton Complex.
