SAINT MARK'S SPARTANS HOST "SACK MUSCLE DISEASE" GAME AGAINST SAINT ELIZABETH HIGH SCHOOL

WILMINGTON, DE - The Vikings of Saint Elizabeth High School and the Spartans of Saint Mark's High School have joined the Muscle Movement Foundation for the second consecutive season, playing with a purpose to "Sack Muscle Disease"! Both teams have welcomed local Muscle Champions - individuals living and refusing to lose to muscle disease, and have dedicated their game performances to their Muscle Champion's fight against muscle disease. Each season, the Spartans and the Vikings welcome their Muscle Champions as their honorary captains. Muscle Champions Mike Smith, Max French, and Mason Nellius have proudly walked, or rode, to the coin toss at every home game this season.

Friday, November 4th, 2016, both teams met at Saint Mark's High School during a regular season game, and competed to be awarded the very first 2016 Delaware "Sack Muscle Disease" Game Trophy! The Saint Mark's Spartans and Saint Elizabeth Vikings carry a strong Catholic Conference rivalry, which creates a competitive environment. Despite this rivalry, the Spartans and Vikings have taken initiative to add a purpose to their rivalry; to "Sack Muscle Disease"!

The Saint Mark's Spartans proudly excepted the trophy from Muscle Movement Foundation President and Spartan Alumnus, Rob DeMasi, after defeating Saint Elizabeth  35-20.

Although the Spartans won the game, both teams were deemed Champions. They were crowned Champions by the over one million fathers, mothers, sons, and daughters in the United States, who are robbed of their muscular function. As the young men move their muscles to compete in a sport the love, win or lose, they leave it all on the field in honor of their Muscle Champions.
