Congratulations to the Irish of St. Patrick and the Rockachaws of St. Stanislaus for bringing two state championship titles to the Coast.
On Saturday in Clinton:
p The boys of St. Patrick shut out Forest to win the state Class 1A-2A-3A soccer championship,
p Not to be outdone, the boys of St. Stanislaus shut out Florence to claim the Class 4A soccer crown.
It was the sixth such state championship for the Rockachaws and the first for the Irish (since the school was formed by the merger of Mercy Cross and St. John in 2008).
