Athletics play a significant part in student life at La Salle College High School. Whether as a participant or spectator, each student experiences a sense of pride, excitement, and accomplishment. Student athletes learn to face their problems, analyze their situations, and adjust accordingly. This allows La Salle student athletes to go out into the world with a sense of responsibility and a well-developed character.
The Explorers were able to overcome a back and forth first half, and seized control with a 22 point third quarter, in a much needed road victory over host Bonner Prendie by a score of 58-49. Joey Dempsey had a nice game with 11 points, 3 assists, and 3 rebounds, while Marvin Harrison chipped in 8 points, 3 rebounds, and 3 steals. Jake Timby had a nice game off the bench with 13 points and 2 steals. Liam O'Donnell netted 8 points and Shane Holland contributed 6 points.
Allen Powell scored 19 and three other Explorers added double-figures (Sean Simon 13, Titus Beard 11, and Kahlil Diarrah 11) as La Salle improved to 11-5 and 4-3 in the Philadelphia Catholic League.
In addition, 4 Explorers were named to the 2018 All-Catholic Team.
Congratulations to Zach Crisler, Jr., Allen Powell, Jr., Sean Simon, Sr.
