Runnin’ with the Revs is back after a two-year hiatus because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Was it a charge or a flop? Father Mitchel Zimmerman, chaplain/director of the St. Lawrence Catholic Campus Center at the University of Kansas, lies on the floor after the charge/flop as teammate Jack Elder (in black) offers a hand up. Meanwhile, William Anderson (in white) laughs at the theatrics. For the record — it was a flop. LEAVEN PHOTO BY KATHRYN WHITE

The first game was played March 21 at Bishop Miege High School in Roeland Park.

The game, which features archdiocesan priests and seminarians teaming up with local high school and middle school boys, has long been an entertaining affair.

Father Kent O’Connor goes to the stands and offers the basketball to Sister Maria Delores, PJC, to shoot a free throw. She gave it her best shot but ultimately missed the free throw. LEAVEN PHOTO BY KATHRYN WHITE

This night, an estimated crowd of 250 saw the Revs’ white team beat the Revs’ black squad 85-77.
