Regents basketball finished its most dominant season ever - with all four of our teams competing in their conference or state finals! Congratulations to varsity boys basketball for winning the VACA State Championship for the second time in four years and to the middle school girls for winning the VACA North Regional Championship (the highest level middle schoolers can play) for the first time ever. The varsity girls were runners up for the VACA State Championship - the first time the girls had ever made it into the championship game - and the middle school boys were runners up for their conference as well.
“The fact that all four of our teams made it to the championship is a huge success. Our players are learning at an early age that hard work pays off, and how to do that for the honor and glory of God,” says Athletic Director and Head Varsity Boys Basketball Coach Travis Johnson. “I’m especially excited that we’re cultivating at Regents a culture where people want to come out for the team not just because we’re winning but because they realize how much of a family we become over the course of the season."
"As a varsity coach, it’s exciting to see the success of the middle school teams because the future is bright for Regents basketball and there will be so many opportunities to build on this success. The girls’ middle school win and girls varsity’s first-ever trip to the semi-finals and championship is a statement that the girls’ program has arrived too. The girls are planting their flag and they’re building their own winning culture."
"On the boys' side, there was only one player on the varsity team who had been on the team when the boys team won the championship four years ago. This win feels like the start of another generation of guys coming through the basketball program, who are going to step up in turn and have stories to tell and have the experience to help the younger guys come up and want to do what it takes to get here again.”
Special congratulations to:
