The Philadelphia Catholic league is a wide open race this year for boys’ basketball. Archbishop Ryan is one of those teams vying for a top six seed and a home playoff game.

Currently the Raiders are in a four way tie for the fifth seed with Roman Catholic, Archbishop Wood and  La Salle College High School; All of these teams hold a record of 4-3.

The parody in the Catholic League is mind blowing. In the preseason rankings, Archbishop Wood was projected to finish as the number one seed and Bishop Mcdevitt was projected to finish in last place. Well the raiders have defeated Archbishop Wood but have lost to Bishop Mcdevitt. It is pretty obvious that any team has a chance to beat any team.

“It was such a great feeling to beat Wood but it was so disappointing after the loss to Mcdevitt so we know we can not get to high or low on ourselves,” said Junior Colin Reed.

With thirteen games total in the Catholic League, Ryan has played seven of them and have met the halfway point of the season. They sit one game above .500 but have yet to play the top 3 seeds in the league: Monsignor Bonner, Archbishop Carroll, and Saints Neumann and Goretti. The season finale is February 11 against La Salle so the Raiders have less than a month to prove themselves as a Catholic League powerhouse.

“We have got to the Palestra the two previous years so that is obviously still the goal here,” said Senior Devon Vargas.
