Scattered throughout Ned McGraw Gymnasium on Friday night were reminders of 50 years of an incredible athletic legacy for Dave Doemel, from teammates during his playing days at Christian Brothers Academy to the countless players he coached in both basketball and baseball at the school. As the final buzzer sounded, the Brothers had secured a 66-48 victory over Columbia in Suburban Council boys’ basketball action. With the win, Doemel surpassed Bill Telasky — the man he played for —to become the program’s all-time leader with 335 varsity victories.Details
It required overtime Friday night, but the Christian Brothers Academy boys’ basketball team managed to secure a 65-57 road victory at Averill Park. That Suburban Council triumph proved to be a historic win as it allowed coach Dave Doemel to tie Bill Telasky atop the all-time CBA coaching list with 334 victories. Doemel, who has guided the Brothers’ varsity program since the 1997-98 season, can surpass Telasky on Friday night if the Brothers (8-5 overall, 6-4 league) prevail against visiting Columbia (8-6, 7-4).Details
