Holy Trinity School’s 6th grade boys basketball team won the St. Rose of Lima Tournament during their Thanksgiving break. The team beat St. Vincent Martyr 47-23 in the semi-final game. Kevin Cull was the high scorer with 16 points, followed by Parker Smith who had 13, and Jack DeCicco who had 8.
The championship game against the host team, St. Rose of Lima, was close throughout the four quarters. However, Holy Trinity demonstrated their strong defensive skills by holding St. Rose to only 5 points in the 4th quarter. Holy Trinity triumphed 43-37. Team highlights from the championship game included 29 points from Kevin Cull, and 6 big rebounds from George Dursee in the 4th quarter.
“I could not be prouder of these boys,” said Tim Dursee, Holy Trinity’s 6th grade coach. “This was the first big tournament of the season, and they really gave it their all to come up with a win.”
All Holy Trinity School basketball teams kicked off their regular season this past weekend. The school has competitive teams for students in second grade through eighth grade. Kindergarten and first grade students participate in a winter clinic that begins in January.
Since 1916, Holy Trinity has provided a quality Catholic education to Westfield and the surrounding communities. A 2011 National Blue Ribbon School, its mission is to educate students to actualize their full, individual potential both spiritually and academically.
