This year’s boys’ basketball team made it into playoffs after a 12-8 district season. In their first playoff game against McCallum High School on Feb. 17, they won 77-66. Following their victory, they were defeated by Brennan High School 45-41in a close game.

Although playoffs didn’t go how they wanted, the team has other moments they are really proud of, like their victory against Clemens High School 52-49.

“It was an up tempo game and had a really crazy atmosphere,” junior point guard Trey Knight said.

Now that the season is wrapped up, the team is looking forward being even better next year, according to Knight.

“Next year I want us to be labeled as a crazy tough team that you have to bring your best game against,” Knight said.

For junior combo guard Corbin Stephens, district season will be the focus.

“Next season my number one goal is to win district,” Stephens said.

While the other boys prepare for redemption next season, the seniors, like Cole Price, are anticipating college.

“After high school I am hoping to continue playing the game I love,” Price said. “I will for sure miss the guys the most. We have created friendships that will stay with me the rest of my life.”
