The 2023-24 high school sports season will begin Friday night at the Betty Hearn Foley Softball Complex, when St. Aloysius opens its softball season with a home game against Madison-St. Joseph. The junior varsity game is at 5 p.m. and the varsity plays at 6.

The game will also mark the debut of Mike Foley as the team’s head coach.

“Good concessions, too. Pulled pork. Brats with peppers and onions. The ball should be good and the food should be good too,” Foley said.
