Bottom row: Brett Chodos, Colby O’Connor, Corey Donovan and Jake Genovese.
Back row: Coach Powell Chodos, Macallister Burke, Martin Zhang, Justin Zamkov, Scott Lowder, Coach Jim O’Connor and Coach Jamie Zamkov. Missing: Liam Tassiello

The final seconds ticked off the scoreboard at Jonathan Law High School and with that concluded the Holy Infant-Orangemen’s 7th grade boys basketball season.

But it wasn’t just any season, it was a wildly successful season on all accounts.  “Historically, this has to be one of the best seasons head coach Powell Chodos explained,  “We went 44-11 against  7th grade teams from all over Connecticut, we won the Bristol Christmas Tournament (4-0), we won the Sal Tinari-East haven tournament (4-1), we won the A division of the Fairfield County tournament (3-0) and we won the prestigious Milford Hoopfest tournament (40 seventh grade teams, 6-1 record) I’m not sure if any Orange team has ever accomplished all that.”

Kneeling: ColbyO’Connor. First row: Liam Tassiello, Corey Donovan, Jake Genovese and Brett Chodos. Back row: Coach Jamie Zamkov, Coach Jim O’Connor, Scott Lowder, Justin Zamkov, Coach Powell Chodos, Macallister Burke and Martin Zhang.

Chodos gives credit to his team, “They are a smart bunch, they show up to practice, they play hard, they share the ball and they genuinely love playing together–as a coach that’s all you can ask for”.
