The boys basketball team played a season filled with tremendous progress. The team record was the most overall wins and most league wins in the past seven seasons. Highlights include winning the Lockport Tournament and defeating Aquinas twice. They also defeated both Canisius and St. Joe’s in the same season for the first time in eight years. Unfortunately, the Vikings lost by one in the Monsignor Martin Quarter-Finals to St. Francis. There were many individual accolades for the players. Jakye Rainey ’24 scored a career high 53pts, Parker Rey ‘24 a career high 48 and Channing Francis ‘24 a career high 38. Rainey also eclipsed the 1000pt mark midway through the season! Jakye Rainey ’24 was named 1st Team All-WNY, 1st Team All-Catholic and the Most Valuable Player of the team. Parker Rey ’24 was named 2nd Team All-Catholic and was named the Most Improved Player. Matt Carlson ’23 and Channing Francis ’24 received the Coaches Awards. Matt Carlson ’23 was named All-WNY Scholar-Athlete. The team thanks the three seniors for their time and talent! Returning most of the roster next winter, the team will build on the tremendous progress they made this season.
