St. Helen’s CYO Cadet High School Team, finished their year with a Championship at St. Thomas the Apostle in their Annual “Frankie Caropolo Memorial Basketball Tournament”. St. Helen’s won the last 3 games of the tournament by a basket or less, in a very exciting run. The final game on March 20th, St. Helen’s had to beat the much bigger St. Thomas the Apostle’s Home Team. The game looked like it was to go into overtime with the clock dwindling down, but with 5 seconds left on the game clock James Lodato (Tournament MVP) scored the winning basket fearlessly going hard to the hoop, as he did in the whole series (Final Score 54-52).
