The 8th grade tournaments began on Saturday with the boys winning their game and the girls losing a hard fought battle. The 6th grade boys will start up on Tuesday, and the 6th grade girls begin on Thursday. The 8th grade girls will play again on Wednesday and the 8th grade boys on Saturday. We are hosting the 8th grade boys tournament and will have games Tuesday and Saturday. We can still use help for those games. Links to complete tournament brackets and to volunteer to help are available on the right side of the page. If planning to attend games be aware that adults pay a $2 admission fee for the games. Students and grandparents are free.
The CSAL post-season tournaments will be starting soon. I will send the brackets out as soon as I get them. We will also have a link available for you to view them here as well. I will update the link as soon as I receive an updated bracket from the host school.
We will be hosting the 8th Grade Boys tournament here at Holy Cross and will need lots of help running the concession stand, taking admission and doing the clock and keeping the score book. You should receive an email shortly from signup genius inviting you to sign up to help. There is also a board located next to gym with time slots for workers listed.
Please be aware that schools do charge admission to the tournaments to help pay for costs of awards and other expenses from hosting a tournament. It is usually $2 for adults with students and senior citizens admitted free.
