Congratulations to all of our middle school winter basketball teams. We want to especially highlight the 7th grade boys and 6th grade girls basketball teams for their hard work, dedication, and commitment this season!


The sixth grade girls basketball team has worked hard to improve both offensively and defensively and has competed well throughout the season. Their unwavering work ethic and genuine enthusiasm has been the key to their success. In every practice they have shown their determination to raise the bar as they refine their skills and their overall knowledge of the game. Congratulations on a successful season- go wildcats!
Our 7th grade team had a great season this year. They came to practice to work and spent a lot of time on fundamentals, shooting over one-thousand layups in practice. Every game the boys came to play hard. Every player on the team grew in terms of skill. The team ended up undefeated, but what their coach is most proud of, is the perseverance and exceptional attention to the Loretto values that the boys modeled in each and every game. Their last two games were both difficult wins that came down to grit and determination and they were able to show both!
