The Boys' Basketball season has begun.  First game we faced was Father Henry arr. We were shorthanded and there was no way t hat we could complete shorthanded but we did.  Father Henry Carr won the game. We then met with Marshall McCluhan and played shorthanded and suffered a huge loss.
A new team to the TDCAA called Nile Academy came into our house really shorthanded, so the tables were turned We got to see our high powered defense close the door.  Dante Senior Boys were able to put up 110 points, along with Japrell, Jay-ar and Samson scoring over 25 points each.
Tonight after school Dante welcomes Don Bosco.  Come out and cheer on our Senior Boys'.
