The St. Paul of the Cross Roundball Tournament, co-sponsored by the St Paul of the Cross Men’s Club and the St. Paul of the Cross School Alumni Association, kicked off our very own SPC March Madness. Spectators, young and old, packed the house each night throughout the weeklong tournament, March 5–12. The boys’ 6th, 7th, and 8th grade tournament and the girls’ 6th, 7th, and 8th grade tournament took place in a double-elimination format, culminating with the exciting championship games on the final night of March 12th. The SPC Alumni currently in high school coach the SPC teams, and this year, we had 90 coaches sign up!
Congratulations to the Roundball 2022 Champions, the girls’ Golden Eagles and the boys’ Hoyas! What an incredible championship night and a battle to the finish for all four teams, with both games being decided by one point! Congratulations to the semi-finalists, girls’ Hoyas and boys’ Wildcats. The standing room only crowd enjoyed a thrilling finish to this outstanding week of SPC’s March Madness, Roundball 2022!
Congratulations to the tournament individual award winners:
MVP Awards, Finn H and Ally B

We are thrilled to congratulate Mia Kwiatkoski, SPC Class of 2018, on winning the Roundball Alumni Scholarship Award. The $1,000 scholarship is awarded to a high school senior entering college the following fall, and the recipient is announced during the Roundball Awards Ceremony each year. We wish Mia and the SPC Class of 2018 the very best!
So many individuals and families made this possible, starting with Co-chairs Joe Haugh and Ryan Fletcher, the SPC Men’s Club, and the parent volunteers. Thank you to all of our family and corporate sponsors. Thank you to the SPC alumni high school students for their time and enthusiasm in coaching the teams. We love to see our alumni come back for the week. And of course, thanks to the Roundball team members for participating in St. Paul’s own March Madness!
SPC Roundball Tournament
The SPC Roundball Tournament is open to all students of good academic and behavioral standing in sixth through eighth grades. A school tradition since 2013, the ongoing success of the Roundball Tournament requires the combined efforts of the school, the Alumni Association, the Roundball committee, and the St. Paul of the Cross Men’s Club.
The SPC Roundball Tournament consists of two separate basketball tournaments for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade boys and girls. Our high school-aged SPC alumni return to their alma mater to coach the teams. More than 70 alumni participate each year and have just as much fun and friendly competition as the SPC students! Members of the SPC Men’s Club serve as announcers, and professional referees officiate. Awards are given for the champions, school spirit, and leadership.
It’s time for St. Paul’s Annual Roundball Basketball Tournament for all SPC 6th, 7th and 8th grade students (not just basketball players!) Tournament games (a boy’s tourney and a girl’s tourney) will be held Saturday, March 5th, through Saturday, March 13th. Each team will be coached by SPC alumni who are currently enrolled in high school. All coaches will be expected to dress in professional attire for the games. All games will be officiated by professional referees. Members of St. Paul Men’s Club will announce the game play-by-play on the PA.
