Basketball - Boys' Junior Varsity

Record: 5-7
League Record: 5-7

The JV basketball team completed an excellent season this winter, finishing 10-9 which included a tournament title at the year-end St. Andrew's JV Tournament.  Andrew Bergeron '26, Chase Eggen '25, and Patrick Alves '27 led the way in most games, with Bergeron playing especially well in the road win against Pomfret School.  Bergeron led the team in scoring while Eggen set the pace in rebounding.  Alves and Lucciano Vigliotti '27, among a group of six talented freshmen on the squad, stood out for their consistency and defensive intensity.  Perhaps the most memorable moment of the season occurred at home against The Rectory School, a powerhouse that Marianapolis had not beaten since 2009.  In that tight contest, the defensive work of Vigliotti and especially T. Phieu '24 on Rectory's best player allowed the Golden Knights to emerge with a thrilling 44-42 victory.  Marianapolis also earned impressive wins over Rocky Hill School, Portsmouth Abbey, and Beaver Country Day School.  The players should be recognized for their day-to-day commitment to excellence, spearheaded by the veteran leadership of A. Lopez '24, who was an inspiration in practice on a regular basis.

     Coach Benedict and Coach Seaward are already looking forward to the first practice next winter.
