Championship Dreams

District Champions.

Regional Champions.

Final Four Qualifier.

A team that went further than any other in the previous five decades.

A team that held the number one ranked team in the state of Florida to under fifty points.

Only to lose by five after closing the score to within two with two minutes to go in the game.

Seasons should not have to end in heartbreak.

But, unless you win it all. That’s what happens.

46-41. Heartbreak.

Congratulations, Jesuit.

More Christmas Basketball

Todays update from Daytona Beach, Florida –

The Crusaders played Leesburg High School in the second round of action from the Father Lopez Holiday Tournament.

The Leesburg team played a tough, physical game with strong beyond the arc shooting which seemed to take the BK squad out of their rhythm in the first half.

The Crusaders did rally in the second half to overcome what had been an 18 point Leesburg lead to make the final score 60-52. The Crusaders’ record now stands at 10-2.

The Crusaders return to action today at 4:30 against Mainland High School in the tourney consolation game.

Baby Crusader Football

The freshman football team ventured up to Hilliard, Fl to take on the Flashes of Hilliard Middle-Senior High School in a freshman football game. What the Baby Crusaders lack in football experience, they make up for in enthusiasm.

The Crusaders had it tough most of the night as the more experienced Flashes rolled over the young squad from Bishop Kenny. The Crusaders wrapped up their season with yet another loss, but an experience that will give them the skills to succeed on the junior varsity and varsity football level.

By the way, in small town football, even at the freshman level, the town comes out to see the boys play ball.

Moving Towards New Adventures

Today the Class of 2009 officially became the 56th class of students to graduate from Bishop Kenny High School.

I would like to wish them all the best in their adventures through college and on into their professional lives. This image is the highlight of the ceremony for many graduates. After the last name is called, the mortarboards fly high into the air in celebration.

The end of one era. The beginning of another.
