 St. Camillus / St.Virgilius Basketball is Back

Taylor Sorrentino – Girls League

By Bill Swensen

It’s the beginning of another year of St. Camillus / St. Virgilius Basketball. This year, we have more than 300 kids participating. This number shows that the kids love playing in this league. It’s fun and still very competitive at the same time. It’s a league where we make sure that all the kids get a fair amount of time on the court. One thing that all coaches need to be aware of is that the most important thing to kids is being able to get on the court and play. It’s no fun for them to sit on the bench and just watch, even if their team wins.

The first week of the year turned out to be a great one, with close, exciting games happening every night. One of the best things about our first week were the crowds. In recent years, the crowds kept getting smaller and smaller. This first week was a sharp contrast to that trend. We had the biggest crowds we’ve had in years. It was such a pleasure to see. Here are this week’s MVPs.

Taylor Sorrentino – Girls League

Taylor poured in 23 of her team’s total of 47 points. She dominated all over the court. A very tough player to stop because she can score from any­where. She drops threes, and if you try to take away her outside shot, she’s going to take the ball right to the hoop with her slick inside moves. Taylor led her team to a close 6-point victory.


Sean Sullivan

Sean Sullivan – Junior Boys League

Sean was a force to be reckoned with this week. He poured in a very impressive 30 points. He can make a three when the team needs it, but his game is really using his strong moves to the basket. Seems like the only way to stop him is to foul him, but he doesn’t miss from the foul line either. He led his team to a 3-point victory in a very close and exciting game.


Paul Pedone

Paul Pedone – Senior Boys League

Paul scored a dominating 27 points of his team’s total of 45. He was unstoppable all over the court, but his devastating three-point shot is what impressed the most. In a very tight game, he knocked down four 3-pointers in the third quarter alone. He ended up leading his team to a 4-point victory in a real nail-biter of a game.
