Boys’ Basketball Celebrates Their Win on Senior Night

The Varsity Boy’s Basketball team took on Casa Grande High School this past Thursday resulting in an exciting win, 60-56 for the team at home on senior night. As winter sports close their season, the boys’ basketball team celebrated their seniors on their last home game. 

Will Breal, Andre Armstrong, Trent Ohman, Matt Jordan, Will Borden, and Jesus Alvarez were the six seniors celebrated that night. The senior night was kicked off with the girl’s varsity team’s celebration and game before the boys in which they celebrated their six seniors as well. 

Each boy got to walk with their family as someone read off a small bio about their future plans, favorite memories, and further advice for younger teammates. The gym was lined with balloons, posters, and fans as the boys walked the red carpet to the center of the gym where they took their family pictures and were gifted a framed jersey with their last name and number.
