The varsity basketball team had an up and down season marked by inspiring victories, outstanding team and individual efforts, and some growing pains. After reaching the LREI Tournament Championship game early in the season, the boys participated in the annual Thanksgiving Barclays game against Churchill and turned in a valiant performance.
League play wasn’t as kind to the Panthers, but the team finally hit its stride late in the season. In addition to winning four of their final eight games, the Panthers competed neck and neck with two of the top teams in the league, nearly earning a post-season bid during the final week of competition. The Panthers doubled their win total from last year, showed tremendous growth as a team, and finished the season playing their best basketball. The boys have much to proud of and are rightly optimistic about the future. We thank our Form VI players, Will Jacob ’16, Karsten Monteverde ’16 and Harris Russell ’16, for all of their hard work and leadership, and we wish them all the best in the future. –Coaches Dan Ragsdale, Michael Cohn and Matt Formato
