This past weekend, Hook & Shepherd took to the road and headed to University of St. Mary of the Lake (Mundelein Seminary) for our first in-person sales event. USML was playing host to the annual Father Pat O'Malley Invitational, with sixteen seminaries from across the United States playing in a weekend long basketball tournament. Nebraska's Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary was able to bring home the championship over St. Louis's Kenrick-Glennon Seminary after a competitive three days of play.
In addition to really enjoying some great basketball, we had a great time throughout the weekend speaking to many of the seminarians and priests on campus about our new dri-fit clerical shirts. We heard many of the same refrains that first gave us the idea - existing shirts are often too ill-fitting, too uncomfortable, and simply too low quality to be acceptable to priests and students in need of a better cleric shirt. We're glad to be helping to change that, and look forward to having more priests and seminarians give our shirts a try - they won't disappoint.
