A-Team takes championship

The St. Isidore's seventh-grade boys CYO A-Team completed a magical season by winning the regular season and the Tri-Valley Championship by first beating St. Joan of Arc in the semifinals (52-46) and then Catholic Community of Pleasanton in the championship game (52-48).

In the championship game against CCOP, St. Isidore's was led by Marco Zamora and Colin Chiapello, who each had 17 points, Jerry Karczewski who chipped in 7 points, and point guard Keenan Lee with 4. In the second half, CCOP played fantastically and kept the pressure on SI by coming back three different times from 10-point deficits and fighting back to cut the lead to 4 points on three different occasions.

In the semifinal game, SI came back from a 5-point half-time deficit to defeat St. Joan of Arc, 52-46. Zamora again led SI with 22 points, Karczewski added 15 points, Chiapello added 8 points, Lee chipped in another 4 points, and Trautner had 4.

The team members are Cole Kunsman, Daniel Prayego, Peter Tagliaferri, Jerry Karczewski, Keenan Lee, Coach Gerry Karczewski, Marco Zamora, Jack Sauer, Jonathan Freshman, Colin Chiapello, Alex Trautner and Coach Roger Lee.
