8th Grade Basketball Tournament
March 4th-7th, 2020
The S.C. Classic is St. Christopher School's biggest sporting event of the year. This time honored tournament runs for four days (Wednesday to Friday evenings and all day Saturday). The atmosphere on Saturday is electric as the 8th graders take center court. It's really the culmination of these talented kids' four year journey in the St. Chris Athletic Program.
The tournament includes 16 teams from 8 or 9 schools. In the 2019 girls finals, St. Mary of Gilroy defeated St. Chris. The boys final was equally exciting with St Leo's defeating defeating Sacred Heart.
The S.C. Classic is great fun for all St. Chris School families and the high level of competition is very entertaining. We encourage everyone to come out and enjoy this St. Chris tradition.
