Olivia Teich Girls League

The St. Camillus/ St. Virgilius basketball program is underway with 150 local kids from 4th grade to 8th grade, playing in the Girls, Junior Boys and Senior Boys leagues. Here are some standout players this week.

Olivia is one of the most dominating players in the league. She wreaks havoc on the defensive side. Tearing down rebounds and constantly causing turnovers. Then on the offensive side, her power drive to the basket makes her virtually unstoppable. This week she scored half of the team’s total 30 points.

Silas Porcella
Junior Boys League 

Silas led his team to an exciting three-point victory. This was a nail biter from start to finish. Silas not only led his team in scoring 18 of his team’s 36 points. More importantly, he kept attacking the basket at the end of the game and the other team continued to foul him. Silas calmly knocked down six out of seven foul shots in the final minutes to ice the game.

We had two players in the Senior Boys League that were equally important to their teams, so we’re making co-MVPs this week.

Peter McElhinney
Senior Boys League

Peter was the general of his team in the most exciting game of the night. He handled the ball and basically directed the entire offense. He not only directed the team, but he also led the team in scoring by using his power moves on the inside and dropping bombs from behind the three-point line. He led his team to a one-point victory, scoring 21 of his team’s total 41 points. 

Brendan Hayden
Senior Boys League

Brendan played in the same game as Peter, and he was an absolute dynamo for his team. He just kept making one big shot after another. None bigger than the shot he made at the end of the game. With nine seconds to go and his team down by two, Brendan made a fall away three-pointer with a defender right in his face that hit nothing but net and sent the crowd into a frenzy. Everyone thought that would be the game winner, but the other team had just enough time to score one last shot and win by one.
