Summit K2’s twelfth grade basketball players played in their “Senior Night” game on Thursday, January 19 in the gym as their last home game of their K2 Basketball careers. Senior Night is a school tradition to honor twelfth grade players and them playing their last game at K2.
There were only 4 seniors honored in this year’s ceremony, held between the Varsity and Junior Varsity games. Number 3 – Raj, number 4 – Marcus G, number 23 – Eric D., and number 32 – Tyler B.
The game ended with K2 stepping back in a sportsman-like move orchestrated by Coach Chris. Despite the score, a 54 to 41 Summit K2 loss, the team still kept their composure through the end of the game.

We spoke with a few of the twelfth graders on the team to get their perspective on their time playing on K2’s Boys Basketball Team. “A good memory from this season was going through hardships,” said Eric D. “We still [lost], but at the same time, it’s always like a fight. We had to fight together in order to succeed. And just having little successes like [making a] basket or getting a pass to my team.” He went on to say that he wants to play at the college level as a walk-on next year.
“[My best memory] came this year. I hit a half court shot at the buzzer” Marcus G. excitedly expressed. “I told Coach that I would get me one this year and it happened.”
Athletic Director Keith Seales reported, via maxpreps.com, 0 wins and 13 losses so far this season. The team has 2 more schools to play, one of which they beat last season.
