Lightning Close Out Season at Annual Banquet
On Wednesday, Marth 30th, the Lightning Boys Basketball team celebrated their season at their annual banquet. Each senior spoke a little about what being a part of the team means to them. The theme for all seemed to be the brotherhood bonds that were created, as well as growing as a team and as a basketball family. We will miss our seniors next year, but wish them best of luck in their future endeavors!
Several awards were also presented at the banquet, some of them team-voted and others statistical-based. Winning awards were:
Roger Thompson Trophy award for best free throw percentage: Sean Ryan
Roger Thompson Trophy award for top rebounder: Mason Carpenter
170 Shooting Award (the best sum of field goal percentage + 3-point percentage + free throw percentage; ideal is 50% for 2-points, 40% for 3-points and 80% for free throws): Sean Ryan. His total was an outstanding 195% - 58%/48%/89%.
