It was March Madness with a Catholic twist and youthful fun. 

The season of Catholic Youth Organization basketball for third- through eighth-graders began with historic, wild weather but was snowed under with excitement to the conclusion. The City championship tournament ended March 12, having run for three weeks. Teams played many thrilling title games, with several being decided in the final moments. Most importantly, fans witnessed teams showing good sportsmanship.  

CYO had almost 300 teams participating during the regular season. They had the choice of playing in one of three leagues: Blue, Green or Orange. Blue is the “highest” league and considered the most competitive. Green is the middle league and Orange is considered the more recreational league.  Whatever the category, all of the games are played with a competitive spirit, with the goal of having fun.

The City tournament combined 273 teams, with various brackets: “City,” “Stars,” “Champs” and “Gold.”  Teams were seeded into their respective brackets based on their regular season record.  

CYO staff thanked coaches for their time and energy. We are blessed with successful programs because of them. We wish all eighth-graders much success as they move on to high school and begin a new chapter.
