How does our team feel about their big win?
“It’s like a dream come true. Winning state was something that Ian (‘20) and I have been wanting to do since we were in 8th grade. Since that day we have put in the time, effort, and work to accomplish our goal. For us to make it there was a dream come true; it means the world to us knowing that we were the first team to bring home a championship to Bosque School, and that’s the best feeling!! Having a goal for years and then in your final year accomplishing that goal is amazing because it feels like I’ve made an impact on the school and my time here was spent well!” ~Elijah ‘20
“Eli and I have been dreaming of winning the first state championship for Bosque since 6th grade! It’s an incredible feeling to see a dream come true, and I can’t imagine having better teammates.” ~Ian ‘20
“I am glad our team’s hard work paid off! We stayed together through all the rough times and never gave up on each other. It means a lot to bring home our school’s first championship!” ~Anthony ’22
“It is a privilege and blessing to coach such dedicated and hard-working young men. Everyone on this team stayed focused and locked in on one goal this season. To set a goal, know how hard it is to reach it, and then to accomplish it is special. This team earned it, and I’m grateful to be their coach.” ~Coach Davidson
