Last Friday, December 14th, the Boys Basketball team lost 38-61 to Swenson Arts and Technology High School.
Senior Jakobi Martin-Howard finished with 16 points in the game, with multiple 3 pointer shots and a step-back jump shot from the baseline.
Despite losing by 23 points, the team played well. Swenson is a division higher than the SLA Boys Basketball team, and were reportedly “bigger and better” than most of the more elite teams in the SLA Boys Basketball’s division.
“We could have played better,” commented Senior and Captain Andrew Chalfan, “This just wasn’t our game.”
The next game, against Girard Academic Music Program, is on Tuesday the 18th. Last year some players from the SLA team and the GAMP team got in a fist fight in the middle of the game, resulting in some of the players being forced to leave. “This game is personal to everyone,” stated Chalfan.
