Boys’ Varsity Basketball Graduates Nine Eighth Graders

Following back-to-back winning seasons, the boys’ varsity basketball team will need to rebuild next year. A program-record nine eighth grade players were on the roster this winter, and their experience will be sorely missed moving forward. Led by four multi-year varsity players, Owen Finnerty, Owen Khanna, Miles Sandoski, and Davin Roy, the success of this year’s team was predicated on the camaraderie between a tight group of classmates. The team’s season was highlighted by a dramatic two-point win over Meadowbrook at Friday Night Hoops, a memory that this group of eighth graders will take with them for a lifetime.
