Seton Catholic Central Hosts Stop DWI Winter ClassicPosted: Updated:
Seton Catholic Central hosted their fourth consecutive Stop DWI Winter Classic on Friday night to raise awareness of drunk driving and to honor Aldo Rossi Jr., an officer who lost his life in DUI accidents. The tournament brings together basketball teams from all over New York.
Seton honored former superintendent and athlete William "Pete" Gallagher before the tournament tipped off on Friday night, and marked the first game in the newly renovated gym. His children and grandchildren who stayed local continued his legacy of greatness in athletics for SCC. His youngest granddaughter Bridget Martin is on the girl's basketball team and will play the rest of her high school basketball career in her grandfather's gym.
The Saints played this game down to the wire, only beating the Storm with a few seconds to spare on a pair of free throws, beating the Unadilla Valley Storm 54-53. In the second matchup on the new court, Cardinal O'Hara dominated Susquehanna Valley 88-62.
