Boys Basketball Wins the Rock Holiday Classic
Over the holiday break, Windermere Prep hosted The Rock Holiday Classic. A basketball tournament featuring 16 teams (8 boys and 8 girls) from all over the country. Teams traveled from North Carolina, Georgia, Ohio, New York, Tennessee, Pennsylvania and more. The tournament is an annual tradition and is a great opportunity for the varsity basketball team to compete against some of the top basketball teams in the nation.
During the tournament, the Lakers dominated the early games, taking home wins against teams from Kentucky and North Carolina. In the championship game, WPS took on Winter Park High School in a rematch of the 2014 Rock Holiday Classic. In the 2014 game, Winter Park took home the victory and left the Lakers in 2nd place. The 2015 game would see those roles reverse, as Windermere Prep rolled to a 78-64 victory, further solidifying their rank as Central Florida’s #1 team.
Xion Golding and David Nickelberry were names to the Boys All-Tournament Team, and Senior Parker Davis was named as the tournament’s MVP.
