The City defeated Suburban, 64-61, in the girls game. Local players were Tori Nigro [a Winchester Park resident who played at Villa Joseph Marie this year], Brianna Buckley [MaST Charter] and Delaney Maier [Franklin Towne]. Gianna Grassifulli [St. Hubert] and Katie Harmon [Nazareth Academy] were on hand, but could not play due to injuries.

Suburban defeated City, 81-71, in the boys game. Local players were Jalen Flowers [Father Judge], Elliot Raymond [Frankford] and Patrick Reidy [MaST].

The Philadelphia Building and Construction Trades Council donated $150,000 to the Greater Delaware Valley Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Foundation. Also, each player received $500 toward their higher education needs.

In the last 35 years, city organized labor has donated more than $3 million to charity from the All Star Labor Classic.

In the first game of the tripleheader, Union and Media, as is tradition, played to a tie, this time 77-77. Before that game, a moment of silence was held for Joseph Dougherty, the longtime Business Manager/Financial Secretary Treasurer of Ironworkers’ Local Union No. 401, who died recently. ••
