CONGRATULATIONS HOLY NAME OF MARY CYO 8TH GRADE TEAM

Congratulations to the Holy Name of Mary 8th Grade CYO team! 

On Saturday, 2/25, the boys won the C Division Championship, beating Immaculate Conception of Irvington, 49-41. Great game and the perfect ending to a wonderful season--rather, six seasons as the boys have been playing together since third grade. Thank you to head coach, Ed Croce, and to assistant coaches, Mike Minihan and Matt Windrum. This year's team and their final year together consisted of members Ryan Trapasso, Collin Croce, Matthew Byfield, Thomas Quartuccio, Will Minihan, Matthew Zoller, Jack Eisinger, Peter Gillespie, Ryan Windrum and Luke O'Neill.
