On Monday, Feb. 26, the boys basketball team finished their regular season with a league record of 11-5 and overall record of 16-10. They closed out the season with a score of 71-52 against Centennial, putting them third in league behind Putnam and Wilsonville.

If they win this game it will send the boys to Linfield University in McMinnville, Oregon for the rest of the state tournament. 

“I feel like our team’s grown a lot since the start of the season,” senior Anders Bergler said. “We’ve definitely played more together now and have beaten teams that we didn’t think we’d beat at the start of the season, so I’m excited to see how far we can take it.”
