Royals Outlast Moore Catholic

Christ the King lauded its depth in the preseason and put it on display in its opener.

The Royals girls’ basketball team had eight of the 11 players who saw the court score in a 60-44 win over visiting Moore Catholic in a CHSAA crossover game Sunday night. The Mavericks, which have just nine players on its roster, ended CK’s season last year in the Catholic state quarterfinals. This time Christ the King was able to grind out a win.

“They didn’t have a lot of bodies,” Royals forward Kollyns Scarbrough said. “We took that to our advantage. Our game plan was to run, run and run and make sure everybody is tired.”

Her team trailed Moore 26-22 at the half with Duke-bound star Sierra Calhoun in foul trouble.


Men's Freshmen Open Season With A Win at Chaminade

The freshmen Royals opened their season with an impressive road victory at Long Island's Chaminade HS.

CK won the game by a score of 70-40. 

A close game early, with CK trailing by a score of 10-8, the Royals turned up the defensive intensity with pressure in the backcourt, leading to steals and transition points. The Royals would hold the Flyers to 2 points in the last three minutes of the quarter, and take a 21-14 lead into the second quarter.

The start of the second quarter saw Pierce Boczar convert on his second three of the game, reserve Hegel Augustin finish two tough shots in transition, and Kclejuan Brown throw impressive outlet passes to Jose Alvarado in the full court for quick hoops. Alvarado would score 11 points in the quarter,

The Royals have gotten off to a 3-0 start heading into league play. This was the fourth consecutive year coach Artie Cox has lead the Royals to the championship game in the annual tournament, and his third overall championship victory. 

A special thanks to St. Raymonds and their staff on running a great tournament.





Lady Royals are MSG Varsity Preseason #1

Christ the King forward Kollyns Scarbrough immediately saw the commitment from her teammates on the first day of practice.

The Lady Royals have fallen short in the past few seasons, but Scarbrough has faith things will change for the better. This is the last year for the Siena bound starter, as well as six other seniors, to win the CHSAA AA state and Federation titles.

“The first day of open gym you could see everyone fighting and you can see everybody wants to win,” Scarbrough said. “It’s a great energy that we have.“

Star forward Sierra Calhoun does not want a repeat of the team’s loss to Moore Catholic in the CHSAA state quarterfinals last March.

“That has definitely left a sour taste in our mouths.


CK Royals are MSG Varsity Preseason #1

Black Friday is a day to awake from a food coma and shop. Or relax and perhaps eat more turkey.

For the Christ the King boys basketball team, it’s a work day. So there were the Royals, an hour early for a 10 a.m. practice.

In a mixed bag of a preseason, this was a positive sign for the defending New York State Federation Class AA champions.

“Everyone was here, everyone was running hard,” coach Joe Arbitello said. “It’s tough to do after two days off, but they’re back in the gym ready to go.”

The Royals aren’t getting fat off their previous success, off a 28-3 season that was capped with a third-ever Federation crown. This team wants to make their mark and Arbitello said there’s early signs

Royals score crown over TMLA team (Timesledger Article)

Christ the King’s Sarah Nolan was in a deep goal-scoring slump as the regular season came to a close.

The sophomore forward was creating chance after chance, but was struggling to finish for various reasons and it bothered her. She was too reliant on using her right foot and often over-thought a shot before taking it. Nolan and Royals Coach John Fayad used the time created thanks to a bye into the diocesan final to make sure Nolan righted things before the playoffs.


“We worked on the left foot until she couldn’t shoot anymore,” Fayad said.

It appears she got it down.

Nolan used her left foot to score the only goal Christ the King needed for a 1-0 win over Mary Louis to earn the school’s third straight CHSAA Brooklyn-Queens
