The Saint Charles Athletic Association is proud bestow the Krystina Finn Memorial Award to our most deserving eighth grade girl athlete each year.  The award is named for former Saint Charles student-athlete Krystina Finn who, in her all too short life, had an incredible impact on the lives of so many others.  This short video was produced by Catholic Memorial High School and will do a better job of telling her story than we ever could.

"I have to confess, the first time I saw this video, it brought tears to my eyes.  I was filled with regret that my four daughters never had the chance to know Krystina Finn.  In a world with too many Kylies, Kendalls, Khloes, and Kims, we need more Krystina’s.  It is my sincere hope, that through this memorial award she will continue to serve as a role model and inspiration for the young women and men in our program”. - John Grogan, Saint Charles Co-Athletic Director at the 2017 Athletic Banquet.
