Basketball - Boys' IIIs
The Boys Thirds Basketball Team had a successful season ending with a winning record of 7-6 Highlights include wins over Portsmouth Abbey and Beaver Country Day. John Vigliotti and Joey Werge led the team with dignity and respect. Both captains had a strong offensive presence throughout the season. James Alves was the standout newcomer and impressed the coaches with his defensive prowess.
Season MVP was Jon Reardon who worked hard in the paint and gave his all in each and every game. The Golden Knights worked hard as a team and like any team had its’ ups and downs. But in the end, the Knights pulled together and fought for the colors maroon and gold and for each other.
