On Wed. Feb. 20, both varsity basketball teams took home a win against the Washington Blue Jays. The girls varsity team won by 20 points, 56-36. Boys varsity also won, 64-56.

In addition to the games, Feb. 20 was Senior Night for the teams. The seniors from the girls program are Mar’Shay Riggins and Zainub Ahmed. The seniors from the boys program are Corye Keller, Jarrin McKeithen, Carter McCain, Kent Lawson, Chase Hoeber, Chris Hauk and Albert Edney.

Seniors in the stands cheered on their classmates at their achievement of playing basketball until their senior year. Many of the athletes have received scholarships for sports and are continuing their career in college.

Leading scorers from the girls game were Mia VanPamel and Melanie Giljum. Junior Megan Kruse led in rebounds and steals.

Jayce Catchings was the leading scorer in the boys game with 36 points. McKeithen led in rebounds and steals.

Catchings received an award for scoring more than 1,000 career points on this unforgettable night. He did this is only 48 games and is following closely in his brother Kale Catchings footsteps. A surprise message from Kale was played while Jayce was accepting the award, where Kale expressed how proud he was of his younger brother.

Another tradition took place on Feb. 20, parting the Red Sea at halftime of the boys varsity game. Rishi Kondapaneni stepped up to the crowd, commanded attention, and successfully parted the Red Sea with a pound of the spirit stick.

Despite Senior Night having been rescheduled from a previous date due to inclement weather, the night was a success for the team with two wins, Senior Night, Red Night, an emotional award, and most importantly raising money to fight cancer.
