Fourth Grade CYO-NYC Basketball Champs

St. Barnabas School, an elementary school in Woodlawn, is looking to have its fourth grade basketball team repeat the success it had last year, when the team’s young ladies won their first Catholic Youth Organization New York City championship (in their category) in school history, coach Christopher Toro tells the Bronx Times.

The support and love we received from the community was an overwhelming experience for our young ladies.

This year our girls came back on a mission to repeat as NYC Champs and ended the regular season undefeated at 19-0.

The coach said the team won a qualifier that took place at a tournament at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Grammar School, and will advance again.

Congratulations to the team and we look forward to following your progress.
