It’s clear that St. Mary’s Catholic School boys take their basketball seriously. You might even say these boys play with a “religious fervor!” 

St. Mary’s has five boys teams, four of which have winning records, with the lowest winning percentage being .680! the records of these four teams are:

4th - 13 and 1
5th - 14 and 3
6th - 19 and 0
7th - 13 and 6

Athletic Director, Chris Erwin, credits these remarkable results to excellent coaching by dads and friends of St. Mary's, as well as the skill, determination and focus of the boys. It's a remarkable record, and an undefeated 6th grade team has St. Mary's Chargers fans dreaming of a.dare we say. Middle School Basketball Dynasty!
