Gathered at the Annunciation Church in Brockton on March 17th, nearly 300 attendees from 16 teams representing Metropolis parishes came together to commemorate the achievements of the season.

To begin the program, John Condakes, a high school senior from the St. Nectarios Parish of Roslindale, shared about the special place the league holds in his heart after close to a decade of participation. Following this heartfelt testimony, Alexandra Baltas, the league’s first woman commissioner, began the awards presentation honoring individual players and teams for their hard work.
