In late October, 92 students from St. Peter’s School participated in the Charles County Catholic Schools Soccer Tournament that included St. Peter’s, St. Mary’s Bryantown School and Archbishop Neale School.

“Sports and other supervised activities are a wonderful way for young people to form relationships as they learn to work together,” said Heather Davis, fifth-grade coach and St. Peter’s parent. “I feel that young people with too much idle time will find something to fill the void, and it may be a less-than-desirable activity.”

Over 220 students participated in the event, which has been held annually at the Bryantown Athletic Field since 1999. This year, St. Peter’s sent 92 students to the event, representing grades first through eighth.

“We had a tremendous showing,” St. Peter’s Principal J.R. West said. “Our students at St. Peter’s know that physical activity is an important element in a healthy life. We always have a large number of students who participate in available sports activities.”
