    St.Paul girls basketball did a lot of trash talking before their first round game against Warren but went out there and got smacked.

    Maxie coached at Cathedral before Arcadia. He knows a lot of people there. He want’s to Coach at a Higher Division Team, and have a lot of Alumni Support.

    Rondo must have felt exactly like Michael Douglas’s character Gordon Gekko, when asked about investing in airline stocks: “It’s like going over Niagara Falls—-in my new Maserati.”

    Wait a sec, in fact Coach Maxie actually returned to his previous coaching place. Prior to getting the offensive coordinator job, Maxie was a WR coach for Cathedral. Without a doubt (despite how some critics may have not been into his twitter and instagram posts which me neither personally, but not for Maxie to take personally), Maxie is a tremendous coach on the sidelines and his tenure of turning Arcadia around shows it through thick and thin. I wish Coach Maxie nothing but the best upon his return to Cathedral. He will be miss and I personally will miss a tremendous human being with a good sense of humor.

    I likewise wish Coach Policky and the rest of his staff, the class of 2020, and all future classes (players) the best all to come, especially in the 2019 season.

    All of Arcadia’s transfers are graduating, so the great Coach Maxie must go and find a new place with recruited talent.
    We will now see a closer representation to the real Arcadia next year. Good luck to Policky, let’s see if you can really coach.
