Clear out space for a new banner inside the St. Bede Academy gym.

Family, friends and fans saluted the Lady Bruins state finalist softball team Sunday afternoon at the academy.  They received a police and fire escort from Oglesby thru La Salle and Peru before gathering in the gym.

St. Bede Athletic Director Tom McGunigal put the girl’s accomplishment in perspective mentioning they’re not only the best softball team in school history but the first ever girl’s team in any sport to place at state. Coach Bill Prokup and his daughter and senior second baseman Barbie Prokup also spoke at the celebration thanking the community for their support in the playoffs.

The Bruins finished 24-7.
