Where do you go for a delicious Contemplation Burger? Or, for a Mother Superior Burger? To the St. John the Baptist 8th Grade Girls vs. SJB Norbertine sisters basketball game of course. 

St. John the Baptist School families, students, teachers and parishioners gathered on May 22 for a fun basketball game between the undefeated SJB School 8th Grade Girls A Team and the SJB Norbertine sisters. 

The Costa Mesa parish’s Knights of Columbus Council 14581 served up a delicious BBQ lunch, and then presented the sisters with a $500 donation. The sisters were coached by SJB pastor Fr. Augustine Puchner, O.Praem. The girls were coached by Todd Main, with Fr. Damien Giap, O.Praem., the parish school’s rector, heartily cheering on both sides.  

After high-fives and a prayer, the game kicked off.  It was a very spirited competition, but in the end the 8th Grade Girls emerged victorious. 


Note: The Sisters are already in training for 2022!
