The Sr. Boys Basketball team have had a great week on the courts!
On Monday, March 5th, the boys played in an exciting game against Our Lady of the Assumption School to win the CYO Division 1 Championships. The boys played hard on the defensive end and were able to force some hard-fought turnovers in the final minutes of the game.
The boys continued their excellent team play yesterday at the Bishop Ryan Feeder School Tournament. The boys captured the championships, which capped off their undefeated season. The whole team played well throughout the tournament. A special mention goes to Zack P., who was selected as a tournament all-star. Also, Adian S., who won the 3-point contest, and Anthony R. who earned the tournament MVP hounours.
Earlier this season, we received a note from a parent to commend our boys for their play. The message stated, "The best part of the game was when a special needs student, was able to take a couple of shots unchallenged. He was thrilled to be part of the basketball team. Your boys showed kindness, acceptance and true compassion. It was very touching. They put the feelings of one boy ahead of winning a game." Although we are very proud of their championship wins week, it is these moments that resonate sportsmanship and the truly the values of a champion at St. Mark Catholic School.
Thank you to our coaches Mr. Mammoletti, Mr. Mancuso, and Mr. Palermo for their commitment to our team. Congratulations on an amazing season.
