CLARK, NJ — The fifth grade basketball team from Holy Trinity School in Westfield defeated St. Bart’s of East Brunswick this week to win their division in the Clark Winter Basketball Tournament.

“They were pretty excited for each other,” their coach, Tim Dursee, said. “We were down early by 11 and they fought back to win by 12. They showed a lot of resilience and kept playing hard.”

More than 170 teams and 1,700 players competed in the three-week long travel tournament.

“There was great competition from the area,” said Dursee, who lives in Scotch Plains.
