IN BASKETBALL NEWS


This afternoon Our Dante Junior girls basketball team faces off against Madonna's junior girls in a single game competition.  We have also marked this game as the return of Mr. Griffith who is now teaching and coaching at Madonna. 

He will inevitably be overwhelmed with the standard of competition tonight. 

Lets win this one for the gipper.

Gooooo Dante!
