Both of the sixth grade teams were in action today. Each continues to show improvement and give great efforts in their games. The girls team was the first be in action taking on the first place team from St. Thomas who entered the game with a 6-1 record. The girls were able to take an early lead and then gave a great effort on defense causing many turnovers by St. Thomas. They ended up cruising to a 25-10 victory. The girls will have their postponed game with Resurrection left before they go into post-season action. It will be a 5:30 game on February 8 at Resurrection against Resurrection The boys played a great game as well and had a back and forth first half and a good start in the second but had a hard time dealing with the St. Catherine big man and fell 31-21. The boys played very hard the whole game and had quite a few shots just rim out. This was their final game of the regular season and will be off until the post-season tournament which is scheduled to begin on February 10

Both 6th grade teams and the 7-8 grade girls team had games today. The 6th grade boys opened the day with a game against St. Joe Ost. The boys had a great effort and led for a good portion of the game but some hot shooting by Ost at the end allowed them to come out with a 44-33 win. The 6th grade girls were never able to get much going in their game with St. Joe Ost. They played hard all the way but had trouble getting the ball in the basket.
