FORT WAYNE — In the final weekend of league play for the calendar year 2015, Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) teams saw lots of action.
At the St. Rose site, the St. Charles eighth-grade girls downed Most Precious Blood, the boys from Queen of Angels beat the St. Rose/St. Louis Twins and the Pioneers from St. Elizabeth got by the Lady Twins, 35-28, in a non-conference matchup. Lydia Reimbold led her team with nine points and Kennedy Glenn added eight. In the loss, Meagan Saalfrank and Audrey Renninger each had eight points for St. Rose/St. Louis.
In other games, St. John the Baptist, New Haven, seventh-grade girls’ basketball team saw action against St. John Emmanuel Lutheran School on Saturday, Dec. 19. In a come-from-behind victory, the Raiders were lead in points by Rachel McCarthy and Jasmin Myles. Coach Justin Pranger explained, “Despite being behind in the first half, the girls never gave up and were able to take the lead in the second half.” The final score was 25-22.
Over the Christmas break, coordinator Denny Jamison reports that 26 teams competed in the annual Hoopsfest Tournament. Coverage of that tournament will appear at a later date.
