Lady Knights beat the Bears

The Merchantville Knights are well on their way to the championships. Coach Andrew Korn, Jerry Bennett, and Regina Lovelidge led the girls to the amazing win against the Brooklawn Bears. In the first quarter the Knights were up by 6 or 8. As the game progressed, the other team had catches up. It was now a pretty close game and everyone was playing like a team. The Lady Knights soon had the attitude that they were going to win, and they did! The final score of the game was 33-26 Knights. The other team had many great players. They fought hard against the Lady Knights, but the Knights were too powerful. All of the players did an amazing job, but a couple of standouts were eighth graders Sami Askari and Azariah Ivory - who was all over the boards and shooting great shots. Equally phenomenal was Bryce Westervelt who dribbled up the court with so much confidence it made everyone stare in awe. The Lady Knights will be facing the Somerdale Cavilers in the championships this Saturday. They are excited and can’t wait for the next match!

Annual Gillespie Benefit

Join us at the 14th Annual James Gillespie Sr. Memorial Benefit on Saturday, February 22nd from 2:00-6:00 p.m. at PJ Whelihan's Pub - Cherry Hill. This year promises to be our biggest and best one yet. After Mr. Gillespie passed away in October 2005, some of his relatives and his children's friends created a memorial benefit to raise money for scholarships for students from St. Lawrence School in Lindenwold where our dad coached basketball to attend Catholic high school. After St. Lawrence closed a few years ago, the proceeds from this benefit have been directed towards Camden’s Catholic Partnership Schools Basketball Program, which consists of both boys and girls from all 5 of Camden's Catholic grade schools. The tickets are $35.00 each which includes live music, beer, food, a great auction and a 50/50. To donate a basket or item for the auction or join our benefit committee, please contact Judyann McCarthy at 215-901-6398.
