The boys’ competitive basketball team had a very successful season this year.  The boys finished the regular season with an undefeated record of 8 wins and zero losses!  The boys were the highest scoring team of any of the Catholic school teams, in all divisions, scoring 516 points in 8 league games.  The boys’ season unfortunately came to an earlier ending than expected, as most of the team was sick for the week of playoffs.  The boys all had a fantastic attitude this year throughout the entire season and played very well together as a team.  Great job, boys! 
Mr. Vechina
The competitive girls’ basketball team had an amazing season, finishing their regular season in 6th overall with 4 wins and 4 losses. During the playoffs, the girls worked hard to make it to the tier 2 semi-finals at St. Paul’s High School. They played their best basketball and finished the playoffs with a 4th place finish. This group of young players consistently improved throughout the season as they gained confidence in their skills. Most importantly, the girls fully embraced the concept of basketball being a team sport and demonstrated good sportsmanship both on and off the court towards their teammates and their opponents. It has been an absolute privilege to coach this team and we hope that they will continue to play this fabulous sport for many years to come. 😊
Go Chargers!

Miss McEvoy
