according to Sydney Phillips wanted to play on the boys team at Saint Theresa’s because the girls team was disbanded.
KENILWORTH – A 12-year-old Kenilworth girl who wanted to play on a Catholic school’s boys basketball team was told she is no longer welcome at the school altogether.
But the school said she could not play on the team because she missed the deadline to sign up.
The girl’s father Scott Phillips says that he received a letter from the Archdiocese of Newark saying the seventh grader and her sister are no longer welcome at Saint Theresa’s starting Thursday.

as mentioned in SCOTCH PLAINS — A 12-year-old girl whose family sued to let her join a Catholic high school’s boys basketball team after the girls’ team was disbanded has been expelled, according to her father.
Phillips had wanted to play this year on the boys’ team at St. Theresa’s School in Kenilworth after the school did away with the girls’ team for lack of participation.
As Sydney Phillips did a shoot-around with the New York Liberty on Wednesday, Scott Phillips told ABC7 Eyewitness News that Sydney, and her sister, have been expelled from St. Theresa’s School in Kenilworth.
This is a great time for them and unfortunately on the way home or sometime tonight we have to explain to them what’s going on,” Scott Phillips told the station.
A Superior Court judge ruled in favor of the Newark Archdiocese in December, after Phillips’ family failed to convince school and Archdiocese of Newark officials and filed a subsequent lawsuit.
