This season we had a very young team with four returning varsity players and nine first-time players. Our players competed hard in every game, and we were able to finish seventh in Max Preps. We had three players who averaged double figures in scoring—Anthony ‘22 with 18 points per game, Kyle ‘24 with 17 points per game, and Cooper ‘24 with 15 points per game. Ezra ‘23 was close to a double-digit average with 9.8 points per game. The team averaged 65 points per game which was enough to place second overall in class 3A.
The fan support was amazing throughout the season. In the first round of the state championship playoffs, we hosted Hot Springs High School, former state champions, and our fans outnumbered theirs two to one. The gym was packed, and we sold out tickets for the first time in Bosque School history. Thank you Bobcat Nation for cheering on our team!
Head Coach Clifton Davidson summed up the season saying, “While we didn’t bring home the blue trophy, this team exceeded expectations over and over this year—including mine. We made it back to the state tournament and lost in the Elite 8 to the eventual state champions. I’m very proud of the boys and their accomplishments this year.”
Upper School Girls Basketball
The girls varsity basketball team was very competitive this season, losing most of our games by only one or two points. Our district-win over East Mountain High School was certainly a highlight. With four returning varsity players and eleven new players, who also made up the JV team, we were able to support each other and build a spirited team. Led by co-captain Katia ‘22, who earned the team’s MVP award, and co-captain Raila ‘22, who earned the team’s tough defense award, we had many fun moments that everyone will remember for a lifetime. We’re looking forward to Sofia ‘23 and Emma ‘23 stepping up to lead this young team next year.
Head Coach Matt Fike stated, “Our community service day providing a basketball clinic for the Zuni Youth Enrichment Project on the Zuni reservation was an exceptional team bonding opportunity. This team had meaningful relationships with each other as well as proactively engaging with our larger community. The friendships formed made for an enthusiastic season of positive support. I couldn’t be more proud!”
