 A special honor was achieved this evening when Luke Greenhill shot his 1000th point of his career. The game was stopped to present Greenhill with a basketball painted in the school colors with 1000th point written on it. After a few photos were taken of him and his coaches, the game continued.

Both teams won their games to the roar of the crowd. Afterwards everyone gathered on the hardwood to take pictures of the team members with their friends and families. Tears were shed, hugs were given, and well-wishes were had. All in all, a fun celebration night of both teams’ seniors’ accomplishments.
