Resurrection’s Late Heroics Lead to League Championship

March 17, 2010

The Resurrection Sixth Grade Girls’ CYO team capped off an undefeated (11-0) season with a dramatic win over Ann Seton in the finals of the Westchester Putnam CYO Basketball League at Iona Prep February 28.

Down one with 10 seconds to go, Resurrection’s Madeline Eck headed to the charity stripe for a one-and-one free throw opportunity. Eck – Resurrection’s offensive leader – sank the first basket to tie the game, but missed the second. The sixth grader snared her own rebound though, and scored on the second chance to give her team a 21-19 victory.

To get to the finals, Resurrection bested Holy Name-Valhalla in the quarterfinals and defeated Ursuline in the semis.
