Congratulations to this years Men's JV Royals on winning the city championship.

The Royals finished the season with and overall record of 23-2. Their regular season league record was an impressive 13-2, they won the St. Raymond's Thanksgiving Tournament, and went undefeated in non-league play at 7-0.
The Royals average margin of victory in the playoffs was 13.3 points per game,
This is the 2nd JV City Championship for the Royals in the last 3 seasons.
This group of sophomores now has a 2 year record (freshmen and JV) of 46-4, a winning percentage of 92%.
Congratulations to the Royals players, coaches, and basketball program on their accomplishment.
