What’s next | The Wolves basketball team will go against the San Fernando Tigers on Wednesday, Feb. 1, to fight for fourth place in the Valley Mission League at the Tiger’s lair.

Team thoughts | “I loved our senior night and how it went. It was really fun, especially the fact that we went against my former school. Also just playing the game with my teammates and friends made it an amazing experience.” says Josh Molina, #3.

The word on campus | The boys basketball game was a very intense game even when going to overtime. They deserved the hard fought win for not giving up, and for keeping their heads up the entire time. I see a lot of potential in the Wolves for their last game on February 1. With one more game to come, I hope that the Wolves secure their spot in the playoffs.
