2021-2022 Varsity Basketball

Our basketball program stresses the development of a selfless attitude while on the road to success. Shared team goals around achievement, competition, and both group and personal growth have created a program that pulls the best out of each program member. An encouraging and supporting environment has allowed the achievement of these goals, which has translated to success for both the team and the individual.
