On January 5th, the boy’s Varsity basketball team opened up league play in convincing fashion with a 61-47 win over Saint Anthonys. Junior Stephen Kiernan led the team with 25 points, scoring 14 in the 4th quarter. Juniors Jordan Leach and Brenden Gharagozlo each scored 11 points respectively. Junior Jean Severino comments, “As we embarked our league play with the matchup against St. Anthony’s. We had something to look forward to as this is the same team that knocked us out of the playoffs last year. The boys really brought the energy into the game accompanied by the packed birds nest we had. It was close throughout the game but we managed to pull away with the victory.” It was a spectacular win for the team. See the boys play this Thursday as they take on an away game at Holy Trinity at 7:30.
