The Kansas City Parochial League recognized the sportsmanship and hard work of teams like Our Lady of the Angels sixth grade girls, who, along with their coaches, show off their banner at left. Four schools were given awards this year.
KANSAS CITY - For the first time in its history, the Kansas City Parochial League has honored four elementary school basketball teams for playing with Christian spirit and sportsmanship.

The awards, banners with the schools' name and date imprinted on them, were presented March 5 during the end-of-season tournaments at Rockhurst High School.

Vince Fitzgerald, diocesan director of the Parochial League, announced the awards, given to three girls teams and one boys team.

The awards went to:

  • St. John LaLande 8th grade boys team, coached by Greg Wald and Doug Neisius. Team members included Sean Wald, Michael Neisius, Brad Love, Jake Pena, Kyle Stohlmann, Ian Echlin, Kyle Willms and Ethan Pace.

  • St. Elizabeth 7th grade girls, coached by Brooke Nolen. Team members included Holly Haywood, Grace Owens, Lauren Harman, Leah Fenani, Debbie Velchis, Louisa Blevins and Emily Quartman.

  • St. Thomas More 5th grade girls, coached by Jay Daugherty and Eugene Twellman. Team members included Taylor Twellman, Sarah Andrews, Anne Lobb, Kaitlin Sweeney, Kaitlin Heaphy, Danielle Comford, Nicole Schleper and Elizabeth Daugherty.

  • Our Lady of the Angels 6th grade girl's team, coached by Joe Lopez, was especially recognized for the Christian Sportsmanship award. The team had begun the season with five players, one of whom sustained an injury during a game early in the season. The team played the remainder of the season with four players, including Dulce Ramirez, Brianda Ramirez, Marissanne Louis Thompson and Karina Hinojos.

    Fitzgerald said the league was proud of their hard work and good sportsmanship.
