Knights News · Knight Wrestlers Raise $600 to Pin Cancer


Tuesday, the Knights Varsity Wrestlers hosted the Rossville Hornets in a special PIN CANCER night.

Both teams wore Orange T-shirts as warm ups, the shirts honored those impacted by cancer.  Our special guest for the evening was CC Wrestling alum Joe Mackey ’79.  Joe is the head of the Claire E. and Patrick G. Children’s Cancer Foundation.  CC Wrestling alum Mike O’Keefe ’79 spoke about Joe’s dedication to cancer research and his love for Central Catholic sports.

The meet went really well for the Knights, as they prevailed over Rossville 48-30 avenging an early season loss.
