According to Coach Aye “This team accomplished quite a bit this year. After the previous year’s team won a total of 1 game all season, these guys came together as a team and went 23-9 overall winning the Golden Valley Conference championship, being ranked top 10 in the State of California and making the state Sweet 16 in playoffs. Our undefeated record at home on the season was (9-0), we won the Chabot College Classic, and made the Finals of the Modesto JC tourney (16 teams) for the first time in school history (defeating defending state champs Fresno City 102-91 in the semifinals). This team finished the season with only 9 players, and played unselfish with 5 players averaging double figures in scoring. 6 of the 9 players were freshman, and next year’s team looks even more promising as I look to take the next step in our goal of winning a STATE CHAMPIONSHIP!”CONGRATULATIONS also to Coach Aye for his nomination and award as Golden Valley Conference Coach of the Year!
