Remembering NYC high school hoops legend Clare Droesch

PHILADELPHIA - The thing I remember about Clare Droesch was not so much the natural way she found the basket. It wasn't so much the sweet jump shot that took her from Christ the King to the national stage at Boston College. It wasn't even her self-assuredness on the court or the dry sense of humor she had.
The thing that alway stuck with me about Clare was the respect that other players had for her.
A few days after she had set the Christ the King girls record for scoring back in 1999, dropping 48 points in a heated CHSAA battle between the Royals and scrappy Bishop Kearney, I was at her practice. Sitting in the stands waiting for then coach Vincent Cannizzaro to wrap it up, a few Read more >>

Christ the King confident they can win it all in 2017-18 by Bryan Fonseca

With numerous city and state championships and sustained success over many years, “Christ the King speaks for itself,” as current boys head coach Joe Arbitello says.

That’s why getting bounced in the Catholic League quarterfinals in last year’s postseason served as a disappointment.

This time, the Royals enter with more talent, confidence, and maturity from last season. The Middle Village-based team began their 2017-18 campaign on December 1, losing to last year’s CHSAA Champion, Cardinal Hayes, 84-64, but turned around to defeat 2017 PSAL AA runner-up, Thomas Jefferson, 85-76, on Sunday. 

On that note, does coach Arbitello believe his team has what it takes to win it all this year, which they haven’t done in Read more >>

“I would’ve said, I would like to know what you’re having because it must make you very happy,” Mackey, smiling, told this paper following a Thursday morning team practice in Middle Village. 

But today, this is exactly the case.

The Royals are second only to San Jose, California-based Archbishop Mitty in the USA National Read more >>
