The end of a new season marks a new beginning for the Cathedral Prep basketball program. Conditioning and individual workout programs are about to begin which will spark a renaissance in work ethic for our student-athletes.

The Crusader basketball program wrapped up its season with a brotherhood and family night. The evening included an inter-squad match up, continued with a special thank you to the senior parents, and ended with a potluck meal. We would like to thank all of the parents that have dedicated their time to our program and to this night! Special congratulations to our seniors Benjamin Edwards, Connell Friel, Joel Edouard, Michael Bode, and Jose Velazquez.
