During the winter break, the Superior High School Varsity Basketball teams traveled to San Carlos to participate in their annual holiday basketball tournament.

This year the Lady Panthers were able to take second place in the tournament. Unfortunately the boys did not place in the tournament.

Christine Grap, a senior at Superior High, was one of those selected for all tournament. Louie Fuentes, a senior at SHS, was also selected for all tournament.

Coach Billy Duarte explained that the second place award for the girls was a big accomplishment. “Last year, they did not win a game and to win second place in a tournament is a big deal for the team,” he said.

Duarte was assisted by Manuel Ortega over the two-day tournament. The duo managed and coached both teams during the tournament.

The Panthers have been back on the hard wood with regular season play. Currently the boys varsity team is 2-4 in league play and 3-10 in the overall season. Last week the Panthers split the week with a win over Gilbert Classical Academy 44-37 and a loss to Globe 45-50.
