Congratulating Curie HS All-State Illinois Water Polo & All Sectional Players

Water polo is one of the toughest and most demanding sports an athlete can play. Being an Illinois water polo athlete is an awesome athletic opportunity. We are proud to host great water polo teams here at Curie HS. At the conclusion of each high school season, IWP sponsors an All-Star competition between Illinois All-State Top 40 Boy and Girl Athletes. At this time, we'd like to congratulate a few of our Boys Water Polo athletes who will compete as members of the All-Star and Illinois state-level teams.

Congratulations to Jose Servin who was named to the All-State 3rd Team by Illinois Water Polo!

Congratulations to our Lyons Township IHSA All-Sectional team members selected by Illinois Water Polo:
Jose Servin - 1st Team
Sebastian Chaidez - 2nd Team
Alan Anaya - Honorable Mention

Each of these students has demonstrated exemplary athleticism in their sport. They demonstrate the Curie Way and all of them are eligible to receive athletic scholarships to compete at the collegiate level because they each have an unweighted GPA that exceeds the minimum 2.3 GPA eligibility criteria for the NCAA Eligibility Clearinghouse.

Based on this outstanding accomplishment, the team qualifies for the IHSA Team Academic Achievement Award. This award is designed to reward teamwork not only in athletic competition, but in the classroom as well.

Did you know that 100% of the Seniors on the Varsity Boys Basketball team have a post-secondary plan. Eight out of nine players will continue playing basketball at the collegiate level and one will enlist in the military.

Coach Oliver and Coach Wallace, thank you for equipping these student athletes with the skills and strategies they will need to win on and off the court.

Curie/MCA SPACE Civics Projects in Action

Several of our students had their civics postcards displayed as part of the Art for Social Change exhibit at the Oak Park Art League. Students had a chance to talk about their postcards and civic issues with guests, and guests were able to write their messages on the postcards that will be mailed to elected officials. Proceeds from postcard sales went to benefit the Pro Bono Network in support of those in
dire need of civil legal assistance. Then, on Saturday, our students also held another writing party at the National Museum of Mexican Art in Pilsen during their block party.
