Winter Court—This Saturday!

Join us Saturday night for the Winter Court basketball games and festivities! Because of this week’s spirit days, excitement has been building all week. Students dressed up for themed days all week, and the decorated halls kept them focused on Winter Court Week.

Come out and support your Lions basketball players Saturday night, February 1, as they play Dade Christian. JV men play at 5:00 p.m., and the Varsity men’s game starts at 7:00 p.m. However, in between games, we invite WA families to the Fan Zone in front of the gym, sponsored by Collision Care Xpress. There, Fine Arts students will sell Chick-fil‑A sandwiches, and the Lions Parent Association (LPA) will bring winter to south Florida! Thanks to the LPA, preschool and lower school students can play in the snow and celebrate Winter Court with a taste of winter.

Winter Court also includes some exciting alumni events. At 6:30 p.m., we will honor WA alumnus, Michael A. Taylor ’09 and his World Series Championship accomplishment by retiring his baseball jersey #3 at a ceremony. In addition, at the conclusion of the varsity basketball game, WA Alumni and Faculty take to the court for the Annual Lions’ Knockout Basketball Game.

All these festivities also include crowning the 2020 Winter Court King and Queen at halftime. The entire court is listed below.
