Post-Season Basketball Updates

CYO Championship Games:


The 6th grade boys advanced to the Final 4 of the Blue/Gray CYO Championship Tournament by defeating Communion of Saints 21-18.  The Crusaders were short-handed with just 6 available to play.  They were able to come back from a 3 point deficit in the 2nd half.  They pressed hard, went on 10-0 run in the 4th, putting SJA up by 7 with 1:30 to go and then ran the game out with the lead.  Charlie Eibler hit his 1st career 3 pointer, and led the team in points with 5.  SJA will face St. Anthony of Padua from Akron (9-0) in the Semi-Finals this Saturday.  Go Crusaders!

In the Championship Game against Our Lady of Angels, all of our boys played their positions amazingly!  Each player gave their all and positively contributed to the points on the board.  OLA was a TOUGH competitor.  This team typically scores 30 pointed per basketball game.  SJA 3rd grade held them to 15 points with our impressive defense.

This team is also competing in the 2018-2019 Cougar Basketball Classic at St. Francis of Assisi in Gates Mills.  So far, SJA 3rd grade is undefeated and will go for the win against St. Gabriel on Saturday, February 23rd at 11:00 a.m. at St. Francis.  If they pull out the win, they will go for a second championship trophy on Sunday at 1:00 p.m. at St. Francis.


Good Luck to our remaining teams!!
