A special day for all involved as FIYA athletes got the once in a lifetime opportunity to compete on the Staples Center floor was especially big for OLHC Wednesday, as the Crusaders captured both the Girls & Boys FIYA Division 1 Basketball Championships.
In the girls’ game, OLHC got off to hot start against Paul Revere jumping to an early lead, but the Patriots would not go down quietly. They started the second half with a strong run of their own to get back in it, but OLHC proved to be too much as they took home the title.
The boys’ game featured two undefeated teams, with OLHC this time taking on Frederick Douglas. Although OLHC led from the start, they could never shake the Lions who battled to keep the game close throughout. A late run came up just short though as OLHC held on for a two point win, and their second championship of the day.
Congratulations to all four teams on their great seasons.
