Christ the King (Milwaukie, OR) and the Madeleine School (Portland, OR) made their way to the big dance Saturday March 5th to compete in the CYO CITY Championship.
Third Grade Basketball is all about dribbling the ball and running… all while controlling the ball and not traveling… while the coaches yell out the play by play for their teams to keep them focused on what they should be doing… while capturing the ball from the other team and wrestling it away then “heaving” a high in the air shot as someone catches it, surprised and shuffles around not quite always sure what to do next. Bonus is when those baskets connect.
First basket recorded in the second quarter matched by the other team within 30 seconds. Both teams were then off to the races!
FINAL: Christ the King 21 Madeleine 10 – CONGRATULATIONS to both teams for a fun game to watch.

Christ the King beat Holy Trinity in pre-season play. Christ the King finished third in 2014. Holy Trinity fans came to the game decked out in Red and white ready to cheer! HT student fans had player heads cut out of paper pasted onto sticks. Holy Trinity took decisive control of the game in the first quarter outscoring CTK 15 – 0 with 30 seconds left. Christ the King got on track in the second quarter, began grabbing rebounds, making some GREAT shots including two three pointers by Jackson Jaha. Two free throws by Jaha, with 46 seconds left in the game tied the game 19 – 19. In the third quarter, Holy Trinity went on a 20 point scoring spree, outdistancing CTK by 14 points. With 5 minutes left in the fourth quarter, Isaiah Baker fouled out of the game just as CTK ignited a comeback. Unfortunately, CTK was not able to catch up with Holy Trinity but it was a great game to watch from beginning to end. Lots of talent on both teams!

Christ the King came out to a quick lead in the first quarter but St. Andrew Nativity stayed in the game with tough defense. Christ the King #50 showed remarkable shooting skills and was generous passing the ball as well. Great defensive plays and three-point shooting by St. Andrew Nativity # 2 Justece.
A high scoring game for fourth graders. Two very highly aggressive teams both well coached and well disciplined. Incredibly fun game to watch. Christ the King pulled out to a 16 point lead in the fourth quarter with patience and obvious well drilled plays that made the difference in this contest.
