Will makes the shot
Westside School’s eighth grade boys varsity basketball team will play for the CYO Championship, this Saturday, at 4:30 p.m. at Bishop Blanchet High School. This season was the first time a Westside School basketball team has played a varsity schedule, the first time a Westside School team sport team has won a playoff game, and now the first time a Westside School team has advanced to the championship game!
The team defeated St. Francis in the quarterfinals last Saturday 44-32, and then beat arch rival Holy Rosary for the second time this season last Sunday, 55-46. Westside School trailed to Holy Rosary at half 27-18, but scored 19 points in the third quarter and 17 more in the fourth, to come back and secure the win. The team will face St. Edwards in the championship.

Come cheer on the team!
