Royals Take City Title
   [03/14/2019 - 08:54 AM]

The Christ the King H.S., Middle Village, boys’ varsity basketball team has returned to the Promised Land.
In the 92nd playing of the annual CHSAA ‘AA’ Intersectional Basketball Championship on March 10, the Royals battled to a hard-fought 61-56 victory over Archbishop Stepinac H.S., White Plains, N.Y., at the historic Rose Hill Gymnasium on the campus of Fordham University, the Bronx.
The win marks Christ the King’s first city championship win since 2015. From 2010-2015, the Royals won five of six city titles.

With the score tied 16-16 at halftime, Christ the King regrouped in the locker room and came out strong in the second half.

“After halftime, we came out ready to play,” said senior guard and team captain Nina Rickards, who had a double-double with 10 pts. and 12 rebounds. “Offensively, we worked the ball instead of rushing because it was a fast-paced game at first.
