St. Thomas Academy
It’s Week 1 in the Minnesota high school football season. For the state’s powerhouses, it’s hopefully just the start of another successful run to the state tournament and maybe even the Metrodome.
Taylor Fleming’s goal late in the first overtime lifted St. Thomas Academy to a 5-4 win over Hermantown on Saturday as the Cadets claimed the Class A state high school hockey title.
With two years slipping by without state tournament appearances, St. Thomas Academy wanted to make sure it wasn’t going to be sitting home for a third year in a row.
The name “St. Thomas Academy” may bring to mind a number of things — great athletic teams, military training and faith-based education. You can add one more to the list. Wicked smart engineers.
