Congratulations to Matteo, our 6th grader, who is the Diocesan champion in this year’s CYO Boys Bantam Division Free-Throw Shooting Tournament.

The free-throw tournament was held during the February winter recess. For the competition Finals, students from three schools emerged, including St. Andrew Avellino Catholic Academy’s player Matteo. Matteo and the other two students tied in the first round at 15 baskets each. In round two, Matteo and one other student advanced, both shooting 3 out of 5 free throws; and in the final round, Matteo sunk all 5 free throws to win the competition.

We are so proud of Matteo’s achievement!
