On behalf of the Fathers’ Club of St. Stephen’s and St. Agnes School, welcome to the 61st Annual Sleepy Thompson Basketball Tournament.

The Fathers’ Club, supporter of Saints athletic programs and events on all three school campuses, is honored and proud to host this 61st anniversary event. This tournament is both a high school basketball tradition and a very special event on the St. Stephen’s and St. Agnes school calendar. Lower, Middle, and Upper School students, families, faculty and staff come together for three days to show school unity and spirit, and to appreciate hard competition and sportsmanship. The atmosphere in Goodwin Gym for these games will capture the very best of high school basketball: intensity, competition, and enthusiastic school spirit.
