Notre Dame Prep releases varsity football schedule, homecoming now set for Oct. 12.


Oct. 12 homecoming football game to be played against Portland High School on William Kozyra Alumni Field; rest of season schedule set.

The athletic department of Notre Dame Preparatory School and Marist Academy announced today that the school’s 2018 homecoming football game will be held Friday, October 12, at 7 p.m., vs. Portland High School and that the complete varsity schedule is now set.

According to Betty Wroubel, NDPMA’s athletic director and assistant principal, the Oct. 12 homecoming game joins a full regular season schedule of games in 2018 for the Fighting Irish varsity football team.
“As is typical, it has been a lot of work to get this schedule together, but it's now pretty much set in stone and Coach Fox and his staff are very much looking forward to it,” Wroubel said. 

The 2018 campaign for the Irish opens August 24 with a home game vs. Detroit Collegiate Prep (Northwestern) followed by a tough matchup on August 31 at Muskegon Catholic Central, which finished 8-2 last season.

The homecoming game features a match with the Raiders, who ended their 2017 campaign with an overall 11-2 record. Last season, the Irish fell to Portland, 29-27.

The Irish finished their 2017 campaign at 8-3 after falling to Williamston in the MHSAA district final.
