The Passyunk Square school accomplished an unprecedented feat in winning the Catholic League boys’ basketball championship.
Playing for the boys’ basketball team at Ss. Neumann-Goretti High School, 1736 S. 10th St., has become synonymous with making history.
Monday night at the University of Pennsylvania’s Palestra, the squad added more accolades, scoring a fourth-straight Catholic League championship and becoming the first parochial group to register a quatro of consecutive undefeated seasons in league play. Countering all expectations, the team downed Saint Joseph’s Prep, 59-57, to give coach Carl Arrigale his eight title in 14 seasons.
