Cathedral Well Represented in Big Ten Championship Game
 on November 29, 2018

 on November 15, 2018

Still, even with a sectional-final loss, this was a successful debut. “We were disappointed we didn’t get through it, but we had some pretty remarkable things happen,” Peebles said. The Irish (6-6) not o...
