With four wins, the Dragon boys' varsity basketball successfully defended the title they earned last year at the Frassati Holiday Tournament. Junior Michael Bannerman emerged as All-Tournament MVP, while teammates Antonio Evans and Jack WIlson were also named to the All-Tournament team.
"I am so proud of our guys for their efforts this weekend," said Dragon Head Coach Matthew Wilson. "Once again, they showed true grit in winning four games in two days to win the Frassati Holiday Tournament. We hope to build off of this performance as we head into SPC play."
