Ray High School’s run for the Division IV State Basketball Championship came to an end last Thursday when the Bearcats fell to the Tempe Prep Knights 50-40.
But the ‘Cats didn’t go away easily and fought to the final buzzer in the quarter-final match-up.
The Knights were eliminated in the semi-finals by Joy Christian who took the championship by defeating Arizona Lutheran Academy.
The ‘Cats should be proud of finishing in the top eight in the state in the division and being one of only two rural public schools to get to the quarterfinals.
Congratulations to the team, Coach Jeff Cude, and his staff for a spectacular and exciting season.
