Most students are relaxing this week, taking some time off after exams. But the Catholic school basketball teams are busy playing in holiday tournaments. The girls are mostly near home, either at the Diamond State Classic or the Pat Borowski Classic, while the boys are traveling a bit further. This is a great opportunity to see a variety of teams if you have some time off from work.
