In March the 2014 CYO Championship Basketball Tournament began with teams of boys and girls from parishes and schools competing throughout the Archdiocese of Boston.
During the first three weekends of March, qualifying parish and school teams competed for the Archdiocesan Title. Nine teams took championship games on the weekend of March 15 and 16, as they secured a berth at the New England CYO tournament hosted this year by the Diocese of Providence.
The archdiocesan winners in the grades 5-6 and grades 7-8, parish and school, boys and girls teams, and a parish high school boys teams qualified for the New England tournament.
The champions from the Archdiocesan Tournament will represent the Archdiocese of Boston in the New England CYO Tournament. This year the Diocese of Providence, R.I. will host the New England tournament on March 28, 29 and 30.
