It was a great season for all six of our basketball teams and all 75 of our athletes! A heartfelt thank you to every one of our Winged Lion families for your support throughout the winter: for sharing your children, for coming out to the games, and for all the snacks! Thank you, also, to our Middle School Boosters for providing every athlete with a colorful pair of Rowland Hall socks and hosting fan-appreciation nights. We’re fortunate to have a dedicated coaching staff who put in so much time, effort, and care to develop our student-athletes. Read on for a recap of each team’s season highlights.

A Girls Basketball
Coaches: Zack Alvidrez, Mike Roberts, Sarah Yoon, Brian McCloud
These outstanding young ladies consistently shared their high energy during both practice and games. They worked hard to improve their fundamentals, and they learned the basic offensive and defensive formations in preparation for the Upper School basketball program. After a successful regular season, the girls rounded out the season with a dramatic come-from-behind championship. We hope these young ladies continue to develop their love of the game, and we’re grateful for the opportunity to share time with them on the court. 

B Girls Basketball
Coaches: Zack Alvidrez, Mike Roberts, Sarah Yoon, Brian McCloud
The B team was full of intensity throughout the season, and the girls gained a better understanding of all aspects of the game. As the season progressed, the team really started to gel, and they consistently showed a solid grasp of competitive basketball. The coaches were proud of their attitude and behavior on and off the court, and we look forward to seeing these ladies continue to develop their skills. 

C Girls Basketball
Coaches: Zack Alvidrez, Mike Roberts, Sarah Yoon, Brian McCloud
The C team had a fantastic season. Players committed to early morning practices and honed skills on dribbling, cuts, and properly executed passes. These athletes showed incredible spirit and high energy during practices and games. After each match, win or loss, they huddled together and danced to the “Ole, Ole” song. They were inspirational! Their team spirit and love of the game was infectious, and strengthened the group as a whole. As the season progressed, they gained confidence, made excellent shots, and played aggressively. They also adopted “Hippo the Whale” as a team mascot—they continue to pass Hippo around, and it inspires them to play basketball. The athletes finished their season in third place. Go, Winged Lions! The coaches are proud of the C team and look forward to each player returning next season.

A Boys Basketball
Coaches: Zack Alvidrez, Mike Roberts, Sarah Yoon, Brian McCloud
The A team had a great year. They went 5-2 in the regular season, finishing second in the league. During the end-of-season tournament, they stepped up their game to play their two best matches of the year. In the end, they pulled off a well-deserved tournament championship. Throughout the season, the coaches were extremely impressed with the team’s focus and commitment. They consistently represented Rowland Hall in a positive manner on and off the floor, and the coaches are proud of everything these young men accomplished.

B Boys Basketball
Coaches: Zack Alvidrez, Mike Roberts, Sarah Yoon, Brian McCloud
The B team’s season was filled with improvement in all areas of the game. Practices focused on shooting, making smart passes, and moving without the ball. After a solid regular season, the boys performed well in the tournament, improving their play in all aspects of the game. The coaches are proud of the team’s effort and growth, and we look forward to seeing these athletes continue on their basketball journeys.

C Boys Basketball 
Coaches: Zack Alvidrez, Mike Roberts, Sarah Yoon, Brian McCloud
The C team played hard and had a terrific season. Players committed to early morning practices and honed their dribbling, screens, cuts, and passes. Their increased accuracy and precision helped them clinch an impressive seven wins. They also learned more about the value of team sports: they kept team spirit alive and well throughout the season, and supported each other through wins and losses. At the tournament, they played with heart, gave it their all, and took second place! Congrats, C team! Their growth and development is commendable. The coaches are proud and look forward to the players returning next year.
