Caravan celebrates own championship on ‘Super Monday’

This past Monday Mount Carmel was rewarded with a day off to celebrate the state championship in football. The Caravan stormed to the state title with a resounding 14-0 perfect season with coach Jordan Lynch at the helm in November.

After the victory on the Saturday following Thanksgiving, Principal Scott Tabernacki consulted with his administrative team as well as the football players to discuss the tradition of granting a free day to honor the accomplishment.  

According to Tabernacki, “We couldn’t give the day off right away (following the championship game) because we were hosting the “The Jam.” The morning news program broadcast live from the Alumni Gym on December 3, and featured interviews with players, coaches, and members of the student body.

The consensus was that the ideal date for the free day would be the Monday after the Super Bowl. 

The decision turned out well, as it gave players and students a well deserved three-day weekend during the dreary days of winter. This also was a great opportunity for Mount Carmel students to brag to their friends who attend other schools.
