St. Clement claims national championship
Submitted By Coach Lawrence Salas
St Clement (Hayward) 4th grade American and National Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) boyÕs basketball teams won the Oakland diocese championships in the same grade in the same year for the first time in CYO history. Coach Larry Salas says, "The kids practice and play hard, and the championships are a great example that hard work pays off.Ó
The St Clement Trojans have not won a boyÕs American championship in close to 30 years, and never won a national championship. To win both in the same year is a very special accomplishment. What makes this achievement so special is that both teams are mostly 3rd graders.
Go St Clement!
