While the season came to an abrupt end with a playoff loss, there is only one way to describe the St. Aloysius 6th grade CYO girl’s basketball season: an unqualified success. The girls excelled in the regular season posting a sparkling 10-2 record and qualified for post-season play. More importantly, all of the girls exhibited great sportsmanship and were great ambassadors for Great Neck and the St Aloysius CYO program.
Blending new talent with returning players, the team was able to establish remarkable chemistry. With 17 girls on the roster, practices were spirited as the girls pushed each other to excel. Despite the large roster, team members Ariel Gold, Avery Strongin, Camryn Weinbaum, Clara Goldberger, Cori Shalit, Gabriella Veras, Hanah Weinberger, Jillian Bergman, Olivia Uribe, Makenzie Griffin, Raquel Bedard, Lauren Farkas, Samantha Mindel, Nicole and Daniella Vazquez, and Isabelle Glennon blended seamlessly into a cohesive unit.The St. Aloysius CYO basketball program currently has multiple teams participating in the 5th through 8th grade divisions of the CYO of Nassau and Suffolk counties. All children attending Great Neck public schools are eligible to participate. Try-outs for the upcoming fall season will be held this spring. Additional details will be provided at a later date.
