Mt. Assisi Academy students departed school for the final time last Friday.
One day later, the Screeching Eagles’ athletic existence ceased as well.
When Mt. Assisi was unable to complete a comeback against Chicago Christian in a Class 2A regional championship softball game on Saturday at Trinity Christian College, all that was left were the memories and plenty of tears.
The Lady Knights lived to play another day this spring, but the Eagles are done. Mt. Assisi has closed its doors and the underclassmen among its student body need to find new school homes in the fall.
