After many months, the Boys Varsity Basketball season has come to an end. I personally went to many of the games this year, and I must say, I was thoroughly impressed with the Sabers. So, in honor of their season, here are some of the best accomplishments our Boys Varsity Basketball team achieved this season.
1. A School Record
This season, the boys went 22 – 2 in their games, and one of the losses was only due to a half court buzzer-beater shot. This actually sets a school record for the best Boys Varsity Basketball record. If you do the math, the boys won 91% of their games during the season! That’s quite impressive, to say the least.
2. Max Alba’s 1000 Points
This season was a big one for local athlete and Varsity Basketball starter Max Alba. During his final season as a senior, Max Alba hit an important career milestone — 1000 career points. This is a huge accomplishment and a huge honor, so congrats to Max Alba on a great final season.
This year, the boys were able to celebrate becoming conference champions after a win against Horlick (85-75) last February. Everyone was in high spirits!
4. Great Seniors
The senior basketball players on Varsity are all talented, kind, and great players. It’s a shame we have to say goodbye to players Max Alba, Josh Narrai, and Riley Clark, but they gave their all on the court for their final year as Sabers. All were a part of the starting line-up, along with juniors Jacob Vonderwell and Zak Klug.
These are just some of the highlights of this year’s season, and next year is projected to be great as well. Congratulations to all Franklin Varsity Basketball players, and good luck in all of your future endeavors.
