CYO Boys Third Grade Basketball Final


 

A 30 second comeback sparked a barnstormer of a finish in the 3rd grade boys Championship game as the Madeleine team scored 7 points in under a minute.  They came within 3 points with 20 seconds left in the game but fouling to buy time resulted in a 4 point loss to St. John the Baptist.

FINAL: St. John the Baptist 27

Madeleine 23

Chloe Foerster Edges out CYO 3000 Meter Champ Kelly Park in the 1500


Kelly Park from Holy Trinity came into 1500 Meter with the best seeded time 5:09.01.  Chloe Foerster from St. Pius X had a seed time of 5:33.46.  At the end of the race, Chloe had a final time of 5:04.41, nearly a 30 second improvement in her time and the 2015 championship.  Kelly Park finished second in the CYO Meet of Champions with a time of 5:12.77.  I suspect Kelly’s effort the day before in the 3000 had an impact on her 1500 performance.

I attended the Oregon Middle School Meet of Champions in Corvallis hosted by Linus Pauling Middle School and had the opportunity to watch Chloe where she finished fourth in the 3000 and sixth in the 800 agains the very best middle school competition in the state.  I might also add that the St. Pius girls won the meet!

Excellent job to the entire field!

4th Grade Girls Fighting Dutch or All Saints?


HIGHLIGHTS

The first points of the game were scored, with 45 seconds remaining, in first quarter, by All Saints.  All Saints had 13 kids on the team ( a lot for a bxb team) and they did a great job with getting all of the girls playing time. Both teams played with a significant range of height on the teams.

All Saints led 2-0 at the end of the first quarter and at half time it was the Fighting Dutch 5 – 4.  By the end of the third quarter All Saints had reclaimed the lead and the Final score at the end of 4 was…..All Saints 19 – 11!  (Fighting Dutch are from Visitation in Verboort and St. Francis of Assisi in Roy, CYO’s rural Catholic School teams).  Great job to All Saints and the Fighting Dutch!

Update on Cabin Hit by Tree…


Winter Camp meetings have begun.  The leadership team for the summer program reviews notes taken at the weekly meetings during camp

in effort to make improvements.  At the conclusion of the meetings which lasted about 4 hours, we toured the camp to check on the progress

of the All Saints Cabin which had been knocked off its foundation by a tree.  Then we checked out the renovations inside of Champions Hall.

Special thanks to Candi, Leila and Karen for the great job they are doing making Camp “look great!”
