Honoring Teams of the Past
Last Friday night, Collegiate's boys' varsity basketball coach Del Harris wanted to honor a special basketball team as part of the School's athletic history. Members of the 1994-95 boys' varsity basketball team attended the game and were honored for their historic and fantastic season more than 20 years ago. The team, Prep League Champions that year, brought hard work, honor and distinction to the School.
Although the statistics were against them, the team persevered. There were no returning starters and 90 percent of the scoring and rebounding players had graduated the year before. The team triumphantly finished the season with a 19-7 record and won the School's first Prep League Championship in 17 years.
Coach Harris designed this special evening to honor the players and coaches of past seasons.
"It was very important to our program that we recognize a great team from the past," he said. "We truly believe tradition never graduates. It was a great evening and I appreciate everyone who participated to make it special."
