St. Francis Completes Winning Basketball Season
We had another successful year with our Boys and Girls CYO Basketball program. Congratulations to all the girls teams for their fine seasons, especially to the 4th A and B teams for both making the Final Queens Diocesan. While the A team won the championship, the B team did extremely well.
It is an accomplishment to reach that pinnacle, especially since both teams dominated the Queens area teams.A0Also the 8th Grade team deserves kudos for finishing 2nd in all of Queens in a concerted effort. Con gratu lations to the players, coaches and parents of the 6th Grade for winning the Queens Championship. The 5th and the 7th Grade also had fine sea s ons and showed true grit as they moved into the playoff arena. Every team should be proud of themselves for their collective efforts. The St. Francis de Sales Girls Program has yet again proven itself to be a leader in Queens CYO.A0
The boys programs also faired extremely well. Both 4th grade teams played well especially the B team which advanced to the Sweet Sixteen. The 7th Grade and 8th Grade boys also put up excellent effort in their playoff runs. The 5th Grade under Tom Lee and the 6th Grade under Keith and Marty Andresen and John Tow ey advanced to the Final Four of Queens and will play this weekend. The 5th Grade will play at Monsignor McClancy H.S. at 4:30PM Saturday and if win will play on Sunday at Corpus Christi School at 3:15 p.m.
The 6th Grade will play on Saturday at Molloy H.S. at 10 a.m., and if win will play Sunday at Christ the King H.S. at 6:30 p.m. Thanks to all participants who consistently make SFDS CYO the premier basketball organization in Queens: parents, players, coaches and especially the hard working PAR Jim McKeon, and the CYO Basketball Program Director Marty Andresen. Thanks to all who helped out during the year.
