St. Mary’s fifth grade team won the 39th Annual St. Vincent de Paul 6th Grade Basketball Tournament with a 41–37 victory over the sixth grade team from St. Catherine Siena. This St. Mary’s team has won this tournament for the last three years as a third grade team, a fourth grade team and now as a fifth grade team. After a first round loss to Our Lady of Victory 40-35, the boys then beat St. Gertrude’s 43-32; that set up another match with OLV. The second game proved as competitive as the first, but the boys bested OLV 32-21 setting up the final with St. Catherine. Trailing after the first quarter and the half, the boys tied the game in the third quarter then outscored St. Catherine 14-10 giving the boys a 41-37 win.
Congratulations to John Mastando, Patrick Weber, Louis Perfetto, Duncan Barcelona, John Whelan, Timmy Kiggins, Joseph Mulholland, Jackson Cherry, Patrick Reilly, Jack Zaffiro and Alex “Rac City” Racanelli.
