With football coming to a conclusion, attention turns fully to winter sports. It’s a fairly light week for basketball, wrestling and swimming as schools near the holiday break.
There are a few games of note. Saint Mark’s boys basketball travels to Middletown to meet a highly regarded Cavaliers team. Salesianum and St. Elizabeth will spend Saturday battling high-powered out-of-state foes. And two of wrestling’s premier events take place with a Catholic team in each.
It’s a fairly light week on the girls’ basketball side, although Catholic rivals Padua and Ursuline will meet for the first time this season. Girls basketball will take center stage during the Christmas break with some high-profile tournaments.
