We Appreciates our Coaches


Another great season of CYO Basketball has ended. Epiphany fielded ten teams – everyone who wanted to play ball had the opportunity. There were some great games, an exciting playoff series, and a championship game – won by our 6th Grade Boys team – they are the CYO Manhattan Champions!

None of this would be possible without the generosity and dedication of our volunteer coaches. A special shout out to Mark Baker, (Gabriel, 7th & Christian & Raphael, 4th), who is our CYO commissioner.

Thank you to our coaches!
From the entire Epiphany Community
