Winter Sports (Basketball) Wrap-up
Lower School Basketball
The Kindergarten thru 4th-grade basketball teams did a great job this winter. They had successful seasons full of fun and excitement. Throughout the season each student worked hard at practice and saw their skills develop and improve as basketball players. For our 2nd – 4th-grade teams it was great to be welcomed into the Pius League over at St. Pius. We are already looking forward to the 2019 – 2020 season with this great group of kids we have.
Middle School Basketball
For the second consecutive year, it was exciting to have enough 5th and 6th-grade boys participating that we were able to have two teams, an "A" and "B" team.
Our 5th/6th "A" Boys team ended the season with a tremendous effort against one of the top teams in the league all season. Unfortunately, they were not able to walk away with a "W", but the effort they played with was fun to see! The 5th/6th "B" Boys made great strides over the course of the season as well, they worked hard at practice and continued to improve throughout the season. Keep up the hard work boys! Looking forward to next season!
The 7th/8th Girls Basketball team had a great season that ended with a tough loss in the semi-finals of the MPSL League Championship Tournament. This team has a great group of girls returning next year, looking forward to a fun season in 2019 – 2020.
The 5th/6th girls had a very successful season. They won their first game of the MPSL League Championship Tournament and ended the season with a loss in the semi-finals to a tough Pembroke Hill team. This group of girls has a bright future ahead of them. Hope to see you all back on the court next season!
The 7th/8th Boys Basketball team had a great season that ended with a tough loss in the MPSL League Championship Tournament. The boys competed hard that night and left it all on the court. We could not be more proud of the effort they displayed that last game of the season, and all season long!
