The Caravan is on a roll! After a dominating 49-0 win on September 28 over St. Ignatius, the varsity football team claimed its spot in the IHSA playoffs.

The 6-1 Caravan has been on a tear of late, outscoring opponents 134-19 in the last four games. The offense is looking great, averaging nearly 300 yards a game. On the other side of the ball, the defense is holding teams under a 200 yard average.

Quarterback Radomir Premovic is having a career season. With 11 touchdowns, Premovic is “excited” for this new offense that MC is running. “We were all excited going into the year with a new offense. Having a new look was very different for us, but also for the teams we played.”

The Caravan picked up another victory last weekend when Providence Catholic was reluctant to travel into the city in the face of uncertainty surrounding the Van Dyke trial.  After the verdict was announced and the subsequent demonstrations proved peaceful,  Mount Carmel offered to reschedule the game for Sunday or Monday, but the Celtics opted for the forfeit.

With two games remaining in the regular schedule, the Caravan is ready to square off against the St. Laurence Vikings this Friday at St. Laurence. The final game will be against Fenwick on Saturday, October 20, on Carey Field.  Come cheer on the Caravan!
