Sports Round-Up June 25

To honor late basketball and baseball coach Jim Kerr, Holy Cross H.S., Flushing, has set up a memorial scholarship fund in his name. Through this scholarship, Kerr will continue to have an impact on Holy Cross students – just like he did for 17 seasons as the varsity basketball coach for the Knights from 1979-1996.
