Winter Court Wrap-Up

January 23, 2018 Posted in: School News Tags: , ,

King&Queen-IMG_4493Last week was full of school spirit in honor of Winter Court with dress-up days, the Winter Court presentation, and Friday’s pep rally. All festivities led up to the WA Lions basketball game on Friday, January 19, against the Somerset Academy Canyons.

The Lions entered the game with six consecutive wins, most recently against Calvary Christian, and wanted to add another to that record. The high-scoring game proved this goal was attainable. Winter Court week ended with a Lions’ win: 89-51. More unpredictable might have been the halftime presentation of this year’s Winter Court. WA crowned seniors Aaron Pomeroy and Aliyah Hannah as the 2018 Winter Court King and Queen. Finally, WA alumni and faculty took to the court, and Alumni took home the coveted Lion Knocker Trophy with a win of 54-33 over the faculty team.

Screen Shot 2017-05-17 at 9.20.58 PMTwo state champions met on the basketball court Thursday, January 11, at Calvary Christian Academy. WA, holding the Class 4A state title from last year, started out strong against Calvary who holds the Class 5A title from last year. The Lions led 29-12 at the end of the first quarter, and never looked back. While Calvary pushed hard, they were never able to take the lead and only closed the deficit to 12.

This win over Calvary is the sixth consecutive win for the WA Lions. Yet another reason to look forward to the Winter Court game and festivities this Friday, January 19 at 7:00 p.m.
