Sad day for education and high school sports St. Anthony's High School closing doors, ending reign of renown hoops powerhouse

There's really something wrong with the world if a place like St. Anthony's can't keep their doors open.
CBS Sports reports St. Anthony’s High School in Jersey City, New Jersey, is closing its doors at the end of the academic year, effectively shutting down one of the nation’s most illustrious high school basketball programs.

The basketball program won more than 1,000 games, 28 state championships and four (mythical) national championships under the leadership of Hall of Famer Bob Hurley. But on Wednesday, the Archdiocese of Newark determined fundraising efforts wouldn’t be able to keep the doors open.

“We had a good run, huh?” Hurley said Wednesday when announcing the news inside the school, via the New York Daily News

Hurley met with officials from the Archdiocese of Newark earlier on Wednesday where the decision was made.
