A player seeks a way through defense during the CYO basketball tournament for high school-age players. 

CYO’s high school basketball season had to deal with some snow and ice, with two weekends canceled for safety. 

When the weather cooperated, more than 50 teams competed — 40 for the boys and 12 for the girls. CYO officials laud the level of play and the sportsmanship. 

Most games were held at The Hoop in Beaverton and University of Portland, which has three new courts.  

The season-ending tournament had a record number of teams — 35. It was a zany weekend of hoops.  

The girls City Championship game was between Central Catholic-Byzewski and Jesuit-Froude, with Central Catholic taking the title.   

Among junior and senior boys, Jesuit-Ulum won over Central Catholic-Kelly in the City bracket. 

In the Stars bracket, Central Catholic-Baumbach defeated Oregon City-Craig. 

In the Champs bracket, Jesuit-Niehuser pulled out a win against La Salle Prep-Cass. 

Among freshman and sophomore boys, it was an all-Jesuit affair in the City bracket, with Jesuit-Hickman beating Jesuit-Becker. 

In the Stars bracket, Jesuit-Morgan defeated Thomas Edison-Wold.

“We want to thank our coaches for all of their time, energy and dedication,” said Sister Krista von Borstel, executive director of CYO/Camp Howard. “We would not be able to facilitate our high school program without them.”
