  • Upper School Basketball - Blazers Route Eagles

    The Blazer basketball teams enjoyed a clean sweep of the Eastside Prep Eagles on Tuesday January 24th. The Boys Junior Varsity dominated in their victory, starting hot and continuing their succesful season. They were followed by the Varsity Girls, who came out on fire and led nine to two after the first quarter. They cruised through the second, allowing only four points in the first half. Eastside Prep couldn’t find an answer as the Girls finished strong, winning 47-10. The starters played well, including many rebounds by Junior Grace F. and aggressive ball skills from French exchange student Camille B. The win brought their league record to 4-7. The game featured electric performances from the pep band, including Louie Louie, the Office theme song and the Bush fight song. After the Girls game, the Boys Varsity team took the floor. They dominated early as well, with key layups by sophomore Kai O. and senior Doug N. to set the tone. They took a healthy lead into the locker room, and the second half began in much the same way as the first. The Eagles were not to be denied, however, and swooped in to try to steal a victory from the Blazers. Bush fought on, and won 43-30. It was their third league win, and although they still reside in the bottom half of the ECL standings the team is looking up as their season winds down.
