Boys Basketball Advances to Regional Championship
Last night, the varsity basketball team continued its historic season, winning its regional semi-final against previously undefeated Santa Fe Catholic.
The Lakers offense was firing on all cylinders last night, and had advanced to a half-time lead of 49-30. Coming out of the break, WPS picked up where the left off, extending their lead to 78-50 at the end of the third quarter. The defense would step-up to the level of the offense in the final quarter, allowing just 8 points as the Lakers cruised to a 96-58 victory.
Offensive leader for WPS included senior Parker Davis, who led the team with 29 points and 5 assists. David Nickelberry scored 15 while bringing down an impressive 14 rebounds, and Xion Golding added 11 points and 8 rebounds.
The Lakers will take on Tampa Prep at home on Saturday, February 20th at 7pm for the Regional Championship. Laker Nation, make sure you arrive to the game early as we are expecting an extremely large crowd as our boys basketball team pursues a Regional Championship!
