Grandin Junior High Feeder School Basketball Tournament

Bishop Grandin hosted a basketball tournament for eight of its feeder schools from January 21st – 23rd.   The senior girls’ and boys’ teams from St. Albert the Great, Monsignor J.S. Smith, St. Bonaventure, St. Matthew, Don Bosco, St. Stephen, St. Isabella and St. Augustine provided the crowds with an impressive level of play over the course of the tournament.  Both finals saw Monsignor Smith facing off against St. Stephen.  Both were tremendously exciting games, but in the end, both the Senior Boys’ and St. Girls’ championships were won by St. Stephen.  Thanks to all the teams for a great weekend of basketball!  Many thanks also to all the coaches, teachers and students who helped provide us with a preview of the up and coming stars from our feeder schools.  We look forward to seeing you in Ghost uniforms in the future!
