St. Rose Philippine Duchesne and St. Sabina played a spirited game on Thursday night in a 6th grade boys basketball matchup. The Sportsmanship Brigade was out for the first time this year and the St. Rose coaches set the bar very high from the opening tip. Every timeout was met with high-fives for the boys and calm, yet firm instruction on how to correct mistakes was given throughout.
The team as a whole represented their parish, the North County district and CYC very well. It’s good to see a team win with its play and its character Sportsmanship certainly lives and thrives at St. Rose. The entire squad will enjoy a pizza party courtesy of the Sportsmanship Brigade. Good luck the rest of the season, guys and keep up the fantastic work!
