Oak Knoll boys’ CYO basketball teams wins division championships
Oak Knoll’s fifth- and sixth-grade boys won their respective CYO division championships Saturday, marking the second championship for the sixth graders – who previously won as fourth graders.
The championship capped off an undefeated 12-0 season for the sixth graders. They also made it all the way to the semifinals last season.
For the fifth graders, their championship win was especially impressive given it was their inaugural season. They finished with a 9-3 regular season record and, despite being an underdog, beat the first seeded team from Holy Trinity School.
The girls’ fifth- and sixth-grade CYO team also played hard, resulting in a second-place finish, wrapping up a 10-2 season.
The fifth-grade boys were coached by Michael Barry and Russell Kivler, the girls were coached by David Castellano and Chris Castano, and the sixth-grade boys were coached by Sal Garcia and Craig Chobor.
