Our Lotus basketball teams played their last home pre-season game on Friday, February 8th. With the gym packed, and our seniors feeling bitter-sweet, our Lotus teams brought home the big win.
The Girls Varsity Basketball team beat Aurora West College Prep Academy 50-24, and one of the two seniors on the girls game, Ratag Abdelmalik made player of the game.
Zulaykha, Senior player said, “I was really sad at first, but when I think of it now I get really happy because I was apart of a lot of firsts for the team. I’m really proud of my teammates and how far we’ve come.”
The Varsity Boys won a 67-41 against Aurora West College Prep Academy, another 20+ point win to wrap up the emotional night. Boys and Girls Varsity Coach says, “It’s been a long year, and this class means a lot to me. From Daniel Horra to Saaida Eldursi, I want them to do succeed and remember Lotus is home.”
Even though it was their last game, our seniors plan on winning their playoff game and making state. Let’s hope our Meteors make it for the first time in Lotus basketball history.
