Mount Royal Academy’s JV boys basketball season came to a close last Sunday as they lost in the quarterfinals of the 14th annual Pittsfield JV basketball tournament to Wilton High School.
After a strong start (4-1) they had some difficulty winning on the road. Although the boys often faced larger teams with a deeper bench, the boys tough defense and scrappy play allowed them to maintain a winning record throughout the season and finish with an overall record of 10-8.
The final regular season game against Holy Family Academy was the highlight of the season. The boys pulled off a thrilling double-overtime win before a packed crowd that showed up for Senior Andrew Thibault’s last home game. It was a galvanizing moment for the mostly young team that now looks forward to greater success next year.
