4th Grade Boys Championships

All Saints – Coaches: Ron DePalma & Peter Metz

Emmett, Ryan, Lucas, Samson, Garrett, Alonzo, Boden, Aidan, Peter

St. Cecilia – Coaches: Mark Adams, Benjamin Carrington & Jason Hawthorne

Chase, Brayden, Kristian, Dax, Cole, Jared, Joshua, Kaiden

All Saints had the advantage of their buckets going through the hoop.  St. Cecilia could not buy a basket in the first half which ended with a score of 19-6 All Saints.

With 1:22 left in the third quarter, St. Cecilia began to turn on the burners and outscored All Saints for the quarter 12 – 11 with a score of 30 – 18 All Saints at the end of three.

With a very exciting fourth quarter and a lot of good play on both teams, All Saints maintained a lead of four points. The consistent ball handling and shooting of Lucas DePalma was too much for the St. Cecilia team to overcome in four quarters.

Great game and the game of the day for the CYO Championships!  Good job to both teams!

12-8-spike-st-cecilia-second

St. Cecilia Coaches: Francis Brown, Hannah Brown, Kelly Larson, Mary Massey.  Players: Sydney, Emma, Grace, Mackenzie, Zoe, Emma, Grace, Emelia, Megan, Lauren.

Game Highlights:

St. Cecilia jumped out to a quick lead and Cathedral, five time defending CYO Championship team quickly tied it up at 8-8.  Cathedral began pouring it to St. Cecilia and a timeout was called at 20 – 10 Cathedral.  Not satisfied with a 10 point lead, Cathedral let St. Cecilia back into the game closing in at 18 – 24 Cathedral. A missed spike by St. Cecilia went out of bounds giving Cathedral the first game 25 – 18.

Game 2 Cathedral started strong and never let St. Cecilia back into the game.  The game however was fantastic volleyball played by two teams filled with players who have developed skills to a very high level.  We will see many of them on high school teams next year without a doubt.  Congratulations to the CYO coaches who have worked with the girls over the years to develop them to this level.  A wonderful game to watch! Cathedral 25 – 16.
