Traditionally and realistically speaking, football and the potentially fatal disease polio do not correlate.

After the disappointing loss to Strake in the season opener, the Eagles were hoping to rebound at home against Episcopal.

The varsity football team is ready to make some noise.

Last year the Eagle cross country team came up short at state, placing second overall. The seniors were the core of the varsity with John Cantu leading the way.

With many students involved in sports one way or another, being able to manage time for friends and schoolwork while juggling practices and games always remains a concern for student athletes.

After a dismal 2009 season that concluded with a 2-8 record, head football coach, Donald Hollas, knew it was time for a change.

This football season was filled with good moments.

STH football used to be a way of life, and the football players are on their way to making that happen again.

St. Thomas has been known for its high standard for academics over the past 110 years and is usually at the top of the charts in athletics, as well.

The 2009 – 2010 basketball season ended in disappointment for the district champion Eagles as they fell in the TAPPS 5A playoffs to San Antonio Antonian, 51-49, coming one shot short of advancing to the state tournament.
