Whoever wins will move on to the State Championship next week at Sacramento State. Newman has played in 2 State Championship games and is 0-2.
Basketball season has begun and holiday tournaments will be a weekly occurance. Last week was the Russ Peterich Classic at Montgomery High School, which was won by Vanden high school from Fairfield.
The girls Cardinal Newman Classic also took place with St Mary’s of Stockton beating Cardinal Newman in the championship. This week is the Rose City Tournament at Cardinal Newman with four local teams: Elsie Allen, Windsor, Petaluma, and Cardinal Newman.
Petaluma comes in at 2-0, and Windsor is 3-1. Petaluma faces Redwood in round one, and Petaluma looks to avenge their first round playoff loss to Redwood last year. Windsor will face off with Elsie Allen.
If both Petaluma, and Windsor win their first round games, it sets up an intriguing second round matchup. Cardinal Newman plays Averroes of Fremont in round one.
