Over the weekend, members of our GCAL Varsity basketball team headed to Gettysburg College to be a part of the 22nd Annual St. Francis Xavier Invitational Tournament. There, along with some parish teams from our area as well as from the Diocese of Harrisburg, they became part of the sixteen team competition. Although the smallest in number, and in many cases, size, Villa managed to leave its mark in a grand way. A victory on Friday evening and three wins on Saturday resulted in an appearance in one of the three big games held on Sunday. Sunday’s victory meant that our team returned home with a Fifth Place trophy and many wonderful memories of their time together.
A special note of congratulations to Paige L., who was one of five players named to the All-Tournament team.
