Saints Boys BB March to Class C Title

By | Sports

First Since 1989

SARATOGA SPRINGS – The Saratoga Central Catholic Saints Boys Basketball Squad concluded their season on Tuesday, March 1, with a tight 68-65 loss in the State Regional to Brushton-Moira at SUNY Potsdam. However, along the way Coach Ken Mantia and his team achieved something for the first time since 1989 in netting the Section 2, Class C title. 


The Saints came alive at the right time, posting successive victories over Greenwich, 54-44 on Saturday, February 20 at HVCC, followed by successive victories at the Glens Falls Civic Center – over Middleburgh, 81-71 on Wednesday, February 23, and then over Lake George on Saturday, February 26 with a convincing 59-42 win that netted Spa Catholic their Class C crown. 


Leading the Saints in several scoring categories was junior guard Connor Farrington. In addition to 55 three-point goals, he had 102 free throws and 102 free throws made on the season. Farrington also led the team in scoring in all three of the Saints’ playoff wins, pumping in 14 (tied with senior forward Evan Pescetti) against Greenwich, a monster 34-point performance (including eight three-pointers) against Middleburgh, and then 18 against Lake George in the Class C Final. In those last two wins, Farrington was ably supported by sophomore forward Tyler Haraden, who contributed 20 and 14, respectively. 


With Farrington and Haraden returning next year, Coach Mantia has a solid foundation to build upon for next year.
