Exhibiting Espirit De Corps

Many eyes were on Sacred Hearts Academy's Air Riflery team this past week since the Academy was competing as the defending State Champion. After sitting on edge for seemingly forever, we received the news! 

After all shots were fired, the Lancers held a three-point lead over their closest competitor – only to find out that there was a shooter’s error in not closing the bolt after loading her rifle. In final tabulation, the penalty was 12 points, and Sacred Hearts lost the title. 

What happened afterwards made the entire school ‘ohana proud because our team rose to heights of stellar character. According to one trusted observer, no one person received the glory, nor the blame, as they were of “ONE HEART.” This observer described what she saw as “ESPRIT DE CORPS,” usually defined as a spirit existing in the members of a group and inspiring enthusiasm, devotion and strong regard for the honor of the group. It usually defines something that cannot be measured by scores or acknowledged by a trophy.

When this observer shared her perspective with our Head of School, Betty White, her heart and the Academy's collective 'ohana burst with pride because the soul of our team emerged over the quantifiable scores.

We are ever so proud of our persistent and courageous Lancers
