Some local high schoolers jumped inside the ring Saturday for the 11th annual Boxing Exhibition at Aquinas Institute of Rochester.
In all, 20 different matches were held with about 40 students taking part.

Aquinas is one of only two high schools in the country to offer the sport of boxing.

The hope is to provide a positive influence in the development of each student in a way that's safe, fun and encourages achievement.
