A few words...

I am so incredibly proud of our Saint Maria Goretti basketball players and coaches! I had the wonderful opportunity to witness some pretty great moments of excellent coaching and playing! Thank you to our players for working together with such positivity and our coaches for forming our young players closer to Christ. May God be the Glory!
