Fenwick High School's football team took on Bishop Lynch High School is Dallas last Friday, and was pleasantly surprised by the southern hospitality both on and off the field, High School Cube News writes. According to High School Cube,
"Fenwick senior running back Robert Spillane appreciates the southern hospitality shown by Bishop Lynch Friday in Dallas.
He just didn’t expect it to extend to the football field.
“They took care of the players and coaches and were very respectful,” Spillane said. “It was basically a first-class trip the whole time. Everything was set up perfectly. They gave us all the water we needed and food after the game. They were very nice to play, but I think they were too respectful on the field.
“That’s not us. When we get on the field it’s time to go to work and we’re not very respectful on the field.”
Fenwick made the journey to Texas to participate in Bishop Lynch’s 50th anniversary game.
Dominican priests from Fenwick helped found and staff Bishop Lynch High School in 1963 when the school was still co-institutional. The two schools share the same nickname, fight song and school colors."
