The Team

St. Vincent Pallotti High School from Laurel, Maryland returns this year to the Gonzaga DC Classic after participating in last year’s classic. The Panthers finished 13-17 last season in the competitive Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA).

Led by Head Coach Dennis Murphy in his fifth season, the Panthers return a talented team, including three starters.  5’11” senior point guard Stephen Cannady signed a letter of intent with Division II power Wheeling Jesuit in West Virginia.  Senior forward Amir Warrick (3.7 GPA) is an athletic 6’5” wing that can shoot the three and get to the rim.   Kyron Martin a senior forward is a 6-4 sharpshooter that will add offensive punch off the bench.  Miles Mallory, a 6’6” junior is a smooth shooting forward that is a tough perimeter defender and is part of the National Honor Society.  Isaiah Lattimore (JR) and sophomore Austin Allison will add toughness and scoring to the lineup along with smooth shooting lefty freshman Edward Johnson.

Coach Murphy notes that two juniors, guard Ronell Giles and forward Gilbert Otoo (4.5 GPA) have several Division I scholarship offers, including Columbia, St. Frances of PA, and Howard University.

“We are excited to participate in this year’s Gonzaga DC Classic. I am well aware of the prestige and history that goes along with the tournament,” says Coach Murphy. Our schedule has always been tough and this is a great measuring stick early in the season to see where we are.”

The School

St. Vincent Pallotti High School is the oldest coeducational, Catholic, secondary, college preparatory school in the Archdiocese of Washington. Founded in 1921 by the Pallottine Sisters, the school is located in Laurel, Maryland. Pallotti attracts students from surrounding counties and the District of Columbia and pursues its mission of promoting academic excellence and building Christian character in a small community atmosphere. This is accomplished by an emphasis on the values of diligence, integrity and discipline. The school offers a curriculum that draws on the best of traditional Catholic education while meeting the contemporary demands of a traditional liberal arts curriculum, a challenging four-year honors program, a wide range of Advanced Placement courses and a learning center for college bound students who need individual support.

Pallotti is committed to maintaining the quality and diversity of its student body. Pallotti enrolls students from over 50 different schools in Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Howard, Montgomery, and Prince George’s counties in Maryland, and the District of Columbia. Approximately 47% of the students come from various minority groups, and over 50% of our students are of the Catholic faith. With an enriching international program, Pallotti hosts over 50 students from Cameroon, Nigeria, the People’s Republic of China, South Korea, and Vietnam

The school strives to achieve its primary goal of developing students’ God-given potential through its dedication to the mission of the Sisters: to promote the values of a Catholic education and a tradition of academic excellence. We aspire to remain true to the spirit of our patron, St. Vincent Pallotti, in nurturing a Christ-centered community of faith and virtue.

Pallotti’s goal is to instill, in collaboration with parents, theological, moral and intellectual virtues to aid our students in becoming better Christians. At the same time, we accept and welcome students of other faiths and strive to assist them in developing their moral and ethical character.
