Trinity Catholic boys basketball tops McMahon

By Rich DePreta Updated 9:49 pm, Tuesday, January 30, 2018 STAMFORD — There were moments Tuesday night when the Trinity Catholic High School boys basketball team was breathtaking and everything one would want from a defending Class S state champion. There were other interludes when the Crusaders played like a group offering a mouse a piece of cheese and then pulling the long string to take it out of reach. All the YouTube-worthy and not YouTube-worthy escapades added up to overall success as Trinity Catholic posted an 81-72 home triumph over Brien McMahon High on cozy Walsh Court. It was the Crusaders’ seventh consecutive win and 10th in their last 11 contests. Trinity Catholic improved to 10-3 overall and moved into a tie atop the FCIAC East Division at 9-1 with Ridgefield, a 73-67 loser at Wilton Tuesday night. “We play very well in stretches. But there are lapses,” Trinity Catholic coach Mike Walsh. “Give McMahon credit. They hustled and made us work for it all.” Local Channel Now Playing: Now Playing Pickup truck T-bones sedan on rural S.A.-area road, killing woman San Antonio Express-News Galveston PD releases image of 'Little Jacob' Galveston Police Department Man found covered in blood after crashing car into ditch San Antonio Express-News Man+killed+by+police+after+stealing+bike%2C+riding+onto+Loop+410 Jacob Beltran Police: Drive-by gunman fires 30+ rounds into home, strikes man San Antonio Express-News Woman killed as firefighters battle flames for hours San Antonio Express-News SAPD: Man catches 2 suspect breaking into car on West Side, opens fire Caleb Downs Kawhi Leonard's Relationship with Spurs Is Just Fine, According to His Uncle Sports Illustrated Shots fired call near Alamo Heights prompts large police presence Fares Sabawi UTEP athlete, SA native snubbed @lamTre_/ Twitter HEIGHT WAS MIGHT FOR TRINITY CATHOLIC First and foremost, McMahon didn’t have an Continue Reading

Fight breaks out at high school basketball game

By Tara O'Neill Updated 6:17 pm, Friday, January 12, 2018 STAMFORD — A freshman boys basketball game between Trinity Catholic and Norwalk high schools ended with at least one person injured and a coach facing charges Friday after a fight broke out at Trinity Catholic High School. After the gymnasium was cleared, the junior varsity and varsity games were postponed. Several spectators at the game told a Hearst Connecticut Media reporter there was rough play on the court during the game that led to a brief fight. The remainder of the game went on without incident, but after the game a fight broke out. While the players were participating in the handshake line after the game, one player threw a punch at another and it “turned into a brawl,” one witness said. Once the players started to fight, parents and coaches took to the court and Stamford Police were called to the scene. Tom Keyes, the head coach of the Norwalk boys basketball team, was detained and spoke to a Hearst Connecticut Media reporter at the scene after the fight.

Long Island diocese, Louisiana high school say national anthem protesters will face discipline

The Diocese of Rockville Centre is all for freedom of religion. But when it comes to freedom of speech, that's another matter. The Long Island diocese recently sent out a notice to its three high schools warning that protesting during the national anthem at school events will not be tolerated. Any students, athletes, or spectators caught protesting or demonstrating during the playing of "The Star-Spangled Banner" could face "serious discipline," according to the letter. Diocese spokesman Sean Dolan said the letter is a reminder of "a long held policy." "This is a reminder that all student athletes and spectators are expected to stand during the playing of the National Anthem at school sporting events, without any gestures of demonstration or protest," the letter said. "This is long-standing school policy and applies equally to all participants and audiences at all school events, including those that are not sporting; for example, concerts and plays. We ask our students also to recognize that failure to abide by this policy may result in serious disciplinary action." The Diocese of Rockville Centre oversees three Long Island high schools: Holy Trinity Diocesan High School in Hicksville, McGann-Mercy High School in Riverhead, and St. John the Baptist Diocesan High School in West Islip. Snuffing out anthem demonstrations at the high-school level is nothing new for Catholic schools. Last year, the Diocese of Camden sent out a similar letter that threatened to suspend any student who did not stand for the anthem for two games. "We are not public institutions and free speech in all of its demonstrations, including protests, is not a guaranteed right," Mary Boyle, superintendent of the Catholic Schools Diocese of Camden said last year. Parkway High School, located in northwest Louisiana, sent home a letter to student athletes and their parents this week warning that anyone who does not stand "in a respectful manner" for Continue Reading

Holy Trinity Catholic Academy

Holy Trinity Catholic Academy is a community of learners who strive for academic excellence in a faith-filled environment. Our students are called not only to listen to God’s word, but to also recognize and serve the needs of others. Education is one of the greatest gifts parents can give their children. When a child has a strong foundation in Catholic values coupled with a rigorous academic curriculum, that child will grow in confidence and understanding. At Holy Trinity Catholic Academy we offer a safe, nurturing learning environment that recognizes the different needs of each child. Our dedicated teachers work to provide opportunities for the students to develop ideas that reflect their knowledge of content. While we consistently above the New York City public schools on the state math and ELA exams, we view this as only part of the children’s success. Their willingness to offer service, daily accomplishments, pride in their work, and the relationships they build are true indicators of their growth and development in elementary school. We are proud of our graduates, who last year received over $250,000 in scholarships to Catholic high schools and admission to New York City specialized public high schools. In addition to their academic achievements, our graduates are people of service to others in need, which is a reflection of the values they learn throughout their years at Holy Trinity. Please call (718) 746-1479 or click here to see if a Catholic school education at Holy Trinity could be the right learning environment for your child.   Continue Reading
