            Tonight, was Senior Night at Christ the King, and the regular season finale. It's been a up and down season. Lots of flu, and lots of injuries. But tonight, is more about celebrating students who have passed thru the halls of Christ the King for the past 4 years. It's been an honor to have had a chance to get know these students. The Royals did have a non-league game tonight against Grand St. Campus. CK sat Jeffrey Williamson, Isaiah Rodriguez and Adonis Evangelista.  
        Adonis Evangelista was honored at half time on Senior Night. Mr. Evangelista has a bright future. He's been a starter on the Varsity B the last two years. Fabian Bryan, he's been on the squad the last two years. Mr. Bryan is a class act. Kelvin Reyes has played


        It was Super Bowl Sunday at Christ the King, and Bishop Loughlin was the all-day opponent. First on the schedule had the Christ the King Varsity B playing at 9:30am. This is a tough turn around for the Royals. They played an emotional overtime game the night before. Some players played the whole game. Plus, still no Adonis Evangelista. 
        Bishop Loughlin started the scoring with a put back. This would be a common theme of the day. Justo Cruz got CK on the board with a nice drive to the hoop. Mike Dolphin hit a bucket in the lane. Followed by a steal by Jeffrey Williamson and a full court drive, CK led 6-2. The Lions came back to tie the score 6-6. Mike Dolphin hit another basket to give the Royals a short lead, 8-6. He Lions came back to take a


            Tonight, the Royals traveled to Nazareth High School to play the Kingsmen on their Senior Night. Adonis Evangelista would be out with a groin injury. CK would need help from Fabian Bryan and Devonte Green to pick up the slack. The Royals would have their hands full. 
     The Kingsmen won the tip. You could feel Nazareth's energy was on full throttle. It was Senior Night, so they wanted to put on a show for their parents. The Kingsmen came out firing. They hit on 4 three-pointers and were playing hounding defense. The Royals though were up for the challenge. Jeffrey Williamson hit on a three-pointer and had 5 points in the quarter. Dave Lopez was active, he had a three-pointer and 7 points in the quarter. The Royals were 21-16 after 1. 
        The Royals

 the Christ the King Royals traveled to White Plains to take on the Stepinac Crusaders. It was Senior Night at Stepinac. They honored their Seniors in the same way Christ the King does, so the crowd was excited. The Crusaders had a bounce in their step during warmups. The Royals came limping in,..again. Been the story of the year for the Royals. Tonight, no Michael Dolphin or Dave Lopez (startersMoses Roman or Isaiah Rodriguez (two valuable bench players if not starters themselves). But luckily Jeffrey Williamson returns to the lineup. A lot would be asked of players like Justo Cruz, Fabian Bryan, Devonte Green and Lorenzo Franklin. Coach Henry has barely had a whole team this year.  
          Stepinac won the tip off


   By Harry Powell        

 was a rare road game at Christ the King. Bishop Loughlin had damage to their gym so the Royals were the visitors at their own home gym. Unfortunately, CK would be without two players again, Jeffrey Williamson and Moses Roman. Bishop Loughlin were without their leading scorer too. The Royals were coming off a much-needed victory on Friday, and were hoping to keep the positive momentum 
            Christ the King won the tip off but quickly turned the ball over. The Lions jumped out to a 9-0 lead, which forced coach Henry to call a timeout. Adonis Evangelista started the scoring for the Royals with a bucket and a foul. Coach Henry had his team press the Lions, it seemed to slow them down a bit. Isaiah Rodriguez and Michael Dolphin


   By Harry Powell      
                   Iona Prep came to the Rev. 
John H. Savage Memorial Gymnasium at Christ the King high school Friday night. The Royals lost the previous matchup against the Gaels 56-53. Coach Henry was hoping injured players having a game under their belt would help jump start the struggling offense. The season is winding down, so the Royals need to get ready for the playoffs. 
         The 1st quarter started and Iona Prep got out to a 2-0 lead. Coach Henry immediately called timeout. He saw the same mistakes being made, and wanted to set a tone. Iona Prep started fast, thanks largely to hitting three 3 pointers. Christ the King started pressing early and seemed to knock the Gaels out of their offensive rhythm. Iona Prep has a 13-8 1st quarter lead.



            Wednesday night brought the Molloy Lions to Christ the King High School. It's been a tough stretch for the Royals. Injuries and the flu have ravaged this team. The good news is players are returning, Jeffrey Williamson, Isaiah Rodriguez and Moses Roman were back in uniform. Coach Henry should have had a pregame mixer, and players could have reintroduced themselves to each other. Been a while since this team has been whole. Tonight, the signs of rust were sure to be there. Molloy was looking to sweep the 2 games regular season matchups.  
            Right from tip off you could see the rust. Not only from injuries, but the gym was closed due to Regents that last two days. Molloy didn't seem to be dealing with the same issue, they came



           Christ the King should change 
its name to General Hospital. Coach Henry needs to become Dr. Henry. The Cheerleaders could become the nurses. Instead of basketballs they need IVs. Tamiflu instead of Gatorade. Add Moses Roman to the injury listSo, for the Sunday Brunch Special against the Xaverian Clippers, the Royals were without their leading scorer, their starting backcourt, and four valuable players to their rotation. A tall order against a Xaverian team playing good basketball. The Clippers were coming off a victory against Molloy High School. The Clippers were down 10 points with 3 minutes to go in the game and came back to win the game. They were feeling good about themselves, and not much sympathy for the Royals.  

The Crusaders and the Flu take on the Royals

   By Harry Powell  

   Saturday night had the Christ the King Royals against the 
Stepinac Crusaders. The Crusaders are 3rd in the league standings. The Royals have been decimated by the flu and injuries so far this season. Tonight, they would be without their starting backcourt, Jeffrey Williamson and Isaiah Rodriguez. Tristen Marcano was also out with a bad back.  Another tall order for the Royals but opportunities for some players.   
      The Crusaders immediately started a 1-2-2 press to start the first quarter. It created complete chaos for the Royals. Stepinac jumped out to a quick 9-0 lead when CK called a timeout to regroup. The Royals' troubles continued thru the first quarter. Having a hard time getting over the half court line makes it difficult
