New LALSAC Athletics Website

I don't know how many of you have ever gone to the old LALSAC Athletics website, but it wasn't very user friendly. It didn't work on a mobile device, and it didn't get updated very often. I'm happy to annouce that we have a new website! This one is updated regulary so you will be able to check scores, rules, locations, and anything else you might want to know about or from LALSAC Athletics. Give it a click and check it out! The results from basketball games are listed there. See how we did! 


Have you heard the news? Cross Country and Flag Football are now St. John's sports!!! Volleyball is only for girls and now in the fall! LALSAC has changed things up a bit for the 2018-2019 school year. All sports have been moved to coincide with the high school sports season. Please use this link to the athletic page to find out more about the sports you are interested in! Mrs. Paus is our new athletic director. Contact her at or call school 507-725-3412.
