DATE: December 13, 2010

"This past weekend Dante hosted the first Annual Dante Junior Boys Basketball Classic. The tournament involved 8 teams from the greater Toronto area. It was a tremendous success with some truly exciting basketball. Our own Dante team lost in the consolation final with a great effort from its players. The winners were Brother Andre from Markham. I would like to thank those students who came out on Friday to support the tournament and the students who worked the score clock and game sheets, we could not have done it without you.
A special thank you to Mr. Dickey & Ms. Velocci for their support and supervision throughout the weekend.
A very special shout out to MR. BLACKBURN who put the tournament together and made sure everything and everyone was looked after.
We look forward to even greater success next year."
