This season it looks like the Christ the King is going all out. Already loaded with talent, the Royals add depth with 6’10” Moussa Cissa ‘21 and 6’3” Quaran McPherson ‘20. NYCHoops.net got a chance to see them play during the iS8/Nike Fall Tip-Off Classic while playing with the NY Rens and spoke to their coach about the two prospects.

Will Christ the King return to prominence? 

Kofi Cockburn, a 6-foot-11, 250-pound junior center, continued to improve in his first varsity campaign for Christ the King by averaging 12 points per game while becoming a superb shot blocker and rebounder. With him leading the way, and with a talented young crop moving up to varsity, Joe Arbitello's squad will again be a contender.

CK Beats #8 Paul VI
   [12/05/2017 - 09:36 AM]

Jim Haley USA Today

FAIRFAX, Va. — Christ the King 5-10 senior guard Brandy Thomas wasn’t the obvious choice for the inbound pass. With her team trailing 45-43 with 43 seconds to play Friday in the Art Turner Tipoff Classic, the likely target would have been 6-4 sophomore post Natalija Marshall.

Somehow, Thomas squeezed her way into the lane, took the inbound pass from Kealynn Satterfield and made a layup and an ensuing free throw to lift the unranked Royals to a 46-45 defeat of No. 8 Paul VI (Fairfax, Va.).

“That’s our secret play,” said Thomas, who led Christ the King with 11 points. “Everybody shifts over and I act like I’m playing safety and then you come back for the layup. They caught us on it and I finished strong, so I got the and-one. I expected it (the contact) and I knew I was going to make the shot.”

It was the opener for both teams, so there were plenty of missed shots and mistakes.

NYC Forward Makes Her College Choice
   [09/21/2017 - 10:15 AM]

NYCHoops.net

Mike Libert | Staff

One of the more unsung and underrated talents throughout the summer AAU months was 5'9" guard Brandy Thomas (Christ the King '18).

Starting with the NYC Heat and then finishing up in July with New Heights, Thomas looked more comfortable with the ball in her hands, continuously used her strength to push her way to the basket, while also becoming a strong shooter from long range.

Her importance to Christ the King is huge as well as she embraced the role as veteran leader last season as a junior, and now looks entrenched as one of the Royals top scorers going into her senior season, one that she hopes will end with a CHSAA City Championship.

College wise things were beginning to pick up as of late for Thomas as well, but one school who has been on her for many months now has been LIU-Brooklyn as they were the first school to offer her back in April, and after a visit this past weekend to the Blackbirds campus, T

NYC Forward Turns A Negative Into A Positive
   [09/21/2017 - 10:13 AM]

NYCHoops.net

Mike Libert | Staff

It was a difficult summer for 6'2" forward Klarke Sconiers (Christ the King '19) as one of New York's premier talents was forced to the sidelines for 3 months due to a sprained MCL and a deep bone bruise in her knee.

All she could do was sit on the bench and be the best teammate she could possibly be for her Exodus EYBL 15u teammates, but at the end of the day looking back now Sconiers wonders if the injury may be the best thing that could've happened to her as she has a new appreciation for the game, and a stronger desire to be the best player she can be.

The injury happened on June 10th, and while Sconiers said she wasn't sure right away that it would cost her the rest of her summer, when she did find out Sconiers said her first instinct was a feel of letting her teammates down.

"Everyone was saying it's ok and don't worry but it hurt me because I knew there would be games where they needed me

CK Hoops Star Ready To Take Next Step As A Junior
   [09/10/2017 - 06:08 PM]

TimesLedger.com

By: Zack Gewelb

Kaelynn Satterfield took a big step forward as a sophomore and now is planning to continue improving as she prepares to enter her junior season with Christ the King.

The hoops standout played a big role for the Royals last season. She helped guide the team to a 17-6 record and an appearance in the BQCHSAA ‘AA’ title game. But it wasn’t always easy for Satterfield.

“Last season started kind of slow for me,” she said. “It was my second year on varsity, but it was a whole new team because all the seniors had left, so I had to get used to playing with the girls who moved up.”

Along with learning how to play with a new set of players, Satterfield also moved to point guard after playing off the ball as a sophomore. The new role took some time to figure out, but she found a way to adjust.

“Maybe five games into the season, I kind of got the hang of it and I just started dominating,” Satterfield

            Tonight, was Senior Night at Christ the King, and the regular season finale. It's been a up and down season. Lots of flu, and lots of injuries. But tonight, is more about celebrating students who have passed thru the halls of Christ the King for the past 4 years. It's been an honor to have had a chance to get know these students.

This is a tough turn around for the Royals. They played an emotional overtime game the night before. Some players played the whole game. Plus, still no Adonis Evangelista.

A BATTLE AT NAZARETH

            Tonight, the Royals traveled to Nazareth High School to play the Kingsmen on their Senior Night. Adonis Evangelista would be out with a groin injury. CK would need help from Fabian Bryan and Devonte Green to pick up the slack. The Royals would have their hands full. 
     The Kingsmen won the tip. You could feel Nazareth's energy was on full throttle. It was Senior Night, so they wanted to put on a show for their parents. The Kingsmen came out firing. They hit on 4 three-pointers and were playing hounding defense.

The good news is players are returning, Jeffrey Williamson, Isaiah Rodriguez and Moses Roman were back in uniform.

The gym was filled with Christmas songs as the teams warmed up. The Royals were coming off a Sunday morning victory against Xavierian High School. But every league game is a battle, and though Christmas songs filled the gym Holy Cross was not in a Christmas cheer mood.

Gaining Momentum
   [12/13/2017 - 06:08 AM]

               Christ the King played Nazareth Monday night, after coming off their heartbreaking loss to St. Raymond's on Sunday. The Nazareth Kingsmen had lost to St. Raymond's the week before, but they were definitely going to be a handful for the Royals with their size and athleticism. It was the Royals' second league game, and coach Henry couldn't had been more adamant during the week in practice about the importance of getting off to a good start. Tip off was at 7:45 at CK's home court.

             The first quarter started slowly. Nazareth was hurt when their starting center got into early foul trouble. Tristen Marcano took advantage of that, by grabbing 6 first quarters

The Dawn of a New Season
   [12/03/2017 - 08:09 AM]

     Tonight, was the dawn of the 2017 - 18 Christ The King Varsity B season. With the additions of many juniors from last year's JV City Champions, you can understand why coach Henry is excited about this year's roster. The opponent was Grover Cleveland HS, and last year's results weren't good. Grover Cleveland beat the Royals in a double - digit route. So tonight, would be a good test for this new squad. 68 - 02 Metropolitan avenue was the location.

       The first quarter, the Royals started in a sluggish way. It was the dawn of the season, so maybe the players were still waking up. The Royals were without starting center Adonis Evangelista at tip off, due to academic commitments. Grover Cleveland broke out to a 14 - 8 first quarter lead, thanks largely t
