HALLISSEY - 2017 Boys Championship

   After the opening tip-off, St. Mark's used a powerful offensive attack led by Aiden McCarthy, who finished the game with 16 points.  The Lions then used suffocating defense and tremendous rebounding in the second half to win the Boys Championship 45-28 over Tri-Parish.  Cole Schlader led the Pirates in scoring, also finishing with 16 points.

HALLISSEY - 2017 Co-Ed Championship

   This game was fast-paced with great skills shown by both teams.  The final score did not reflect the exciting action - it seemed at times there was a lid covering the hoop!  Tremendous shots taken that would roll off or rattle out and the teams then raced to the other end of the court.  Will Kinneman took control of the contest, scoring 14 points and leading Holy Apostles to the 25-13 win over Sacred Heart.  Cole Roberts also had 8 in the victory.  The Crusaders were only 3-of-16 from the free throw line and Gabe Clement led the team in scoring with 5 points.

HALLISSEY - 2017 Girls Championship
