The Holy Name Crusaders won their home- coming game Thursday night, Oct. 6 against the Rapid River Rockets 30-14. The homecoming football game started with a unique dedication. The school's new flagpole - unique in that it has a cross on the top - was bless- ed by Father Eric Olson, pastor of St. Joseph and St. Patrick Parish in Es- canaba. Joseph Carlson, principal of HNCS, thanked those involved in the new flagpole project: "This is the spirit of Holy Name and always has been. It would not be possible to do everything we are doing without these volunteers. I am confident that God will bless them as individuals and their businesses for their generosity that they have shown to our school. On behalf of our current school family and those yet to come, I thank you." In 2013, HNCS also updated the football field by dedicating a new concession stand and ticket booth, and volunteers stripped the old paint from the football field's goal posts and re-painted them.
