We’re lucky here in the Diocese of Brooklyn to have a competitive CHSAA sports program across all three seasons. The main factor that sets us apart is located right in the acronym. The “C” in CHSAA stands for “Catholic,” and a newly formed club has adopted the mission to keep the primary emphasis on the C in CHSAA.
The words “Coach Don Kent” are now inscribed into the basketball court at Msgr. McClancy H.S., East Elmhurst.

King Memorial Basketball Tournament returned to the iconic green floor at St. Thomas Aquinas Parish, Flatlands, Dec. 26-30. For the first time, the parish sports association’s new director, Brian Shea, ran the festivities, and it was a smashing success.

In life, we all make mistakes. As Catholics, we believe that since we are human, our mistakes are forgiven through the acts of confession and reconciliation. However, imagine being an MLB umpire — where your mistakes are broadcast live to hundreds of thousands of passionate baseball fans every single night. It sure sounds like a humbling experience!
The highest honor a high school basketball student-athlete can receive is having their jersey number retired and on display in the gymnasium for all future generations to see.
