• The Butte Central Athletic Department is planning a special event for Friday's football game against the Dillon Beavers. This year, the Maroons will honor Sacred Heart Catholic Grade School. Maroon fans are encouraged to wear red and white to the game that night to commemorate the school colors of Sacred Heart’s Grade School.
The Maroon Activities Association is selling official Sacred Heart merchandise “Pride of the East Side”, featuring short and long sleeve t-shirts as well as hoodies. Proceeds from the sale of merchandise will go to the Butte Central Faculty Endowment, which benefits teachers’ salaries.
Alumni of Sacred Heart’s grade school are invited to participate in pre-game ceremonies. All Maroon fans and Sacred Heart alumni are also invited to attend a pre-game barbecue at the stadium starting at 5:45 p.m. Sacred Heart alumni are invited to join in the procession to carry the “We Are BC” flag to midfield prior to the team taking the field. Sacred Heart alumni are asked to assemble on the field near Torger’s Tunnel at 6:30 p.m. For additional information on the event, please call the Butte Central Foundation Office.
The merchandise can be ordered at the Butte Central Foundation Office or at Universal Athletics. Merchandise is also available online at sacredheartgame.itemorder.com. If you have questions, call the foundation office at 723-6706.
