St. Francis 7th Grade Completes Outstanding Season
Congratulations to the St. Francis de Sales 7th Grade Girls Basketball Team. The team had a great season in advancing all the way to the CYO Diocesan Championship on Sunday, February 23rd at Christ the King High School. Their final game started with a strong lead but in the 3rd period, St. Bards scored 13 points and kept SFDS fighting for every point. It was a tough finish with St. Bard winning 37-28. During the playoffs, they faced challenging teams from all parts of Queens, many games ending in nail biting finishes with St. Francis on top. The season’s success is attributed to a complete team effort with hard work and dedication by all; Devin Nuszer, Michelle Cashen, Michelle Kenel, Casey McCormack, Lauren Atwood, Nora Marley, Kerry King, Lauren Spadaro, Patricia Scherpf, Daisy Diehm, Mary Catherine Gillen, Clare Carey, Danielle Stathis and Coach Joe Kenel. A belated congratulations also goes to the team for winning the Our Lady of Blessed Sacrament Holiday Tournament in January.
