Congratulations to the SEP Step Team for their victory at the recent Orange Wave Step Competition at Thomas Jefferson High School.  The team performed an energetic and thrilling routine that wowed the crowd and impressed the judges.  This is the third consecutive top-three finish for Head Coach Shamire Marc '10 and the SEP Step Team.

SEP Softball Strikes Out Autism
The St. Edmund Prep Softball program took part in the annual Strike Out Autism tournament at Bergen Beach on Saturday April 29th.  The Eagles joined with over a dozen other Catholic high schools from across the metropolitan area to raise awareness and funds for Autism research and related programs.  Both the JV and Varsity teams played two games, participated in a silent auction, and assisted with various raffles throughout the day.  In all, over $5000 was raised for this worthy endeavor.
