The Saint Theresa varsity boys basketball team won the 66th Annual Harrisburg Diocese Championship this past Sunday held at St. Patrick’s Catholic School in Carlisle, PA. It's only the 4th Harrisburg DIO Championship in the last 55 years for our boys program. A very exciting achievement by our community's parish youth!
