Saint Mary’s Classics


2019 Mens Basketball
Saint Mary’s vs. Arcadia

Head Coach Damin Lopez, “In the Fall there were some rumblings during the football game vs. Arcadia which we felt they crossed the line and were disrespectful. Our boys fought their tails off but we came up short in a very close battle. That loss was a little bitter considering the circumstances. That was quickly erased when volleyball beat them in playoffs a few weeks later and ended their season, so the rubber match was Boys Basketball. The Bleacher Creatures were in full force, the parent support was amazing and the faculty/staff cheering section was on point. It ended up being a fantastic night for the SM family.”

“Saint Mary’s football gained confidence going into the off season with a thrilling double overtime road victory over the Thunderbird Chiefs, 22-21. “We fought and competed hard against Thunderbird and were glad to pull out the double OT win,” stated Athletic Director Greg Fahrendorf, “although we came up short in our ultimate goal, we built great momentum into the off season with this win that we hopefully can carry forward into 2020.”

2019 Men’s Basketball
Saint Mary’s vs. Shadow Mountain

The Knights Boys Basketball team enjoyed a banner year but one of the more satisfying victories occurred at home this pas season against 4-time defending State Champion Shadow Mountain. “I have never beaten Shadow and although they may not have had some of the talent they’ve had in the past, these games were hurdles for us to overcome mentally,” said Senior Deven Dahlke, “it sure felt good to beat them.” The Knights swept the season series from Shadow including a resounding 34-point at Shadow Mountain.

Led by All-American Defensive End Odua Isibor, the Knights turned in a dominant defensive effort and shut out the Falcons 14-0, knocking Cactus Shadows out of the top 10 and ruining Neon Night for their loyal supporters.
