After an incredible season, the lady bobcats basketball season is coming to an end. For some it isn’t final goodbye, rather it’s the beginning of, potentially, the peak of their high school basketball career, as they will be coming back next year with a completely different team. However, for our seniors this is their final goodbye. The last home game of the season always brings celebration for those that will be graduating. This year, there are seven seniors, five from ASGL, one from SVAH, and one from UCLA that will be leaving us.

As the Junior Varsity’s game ended, the lady bobcats rushed in to start warming up. After a few minutes, Coach Carrillo gathered his team and began to speak on the microphone. The Mendez jaguars, who we beat at their home court, were recognized first. They only had two seniors and they were given roses as an acknowledgement of all their hard work and contribution for their team. Shortly afterwards, the seven seniors from our team began to get called up. As each one was called, a player from Junior Varsity was there to greet them with a poster with their name and jersey number. Besides getting posters, Coach Carrillo went the extra mile and bought the girls graduation stoles(sashes) with their name on it and the RFK basketball logo. He also got them baskets filled with candy, mini rubber basketballs, and balloons. Pictures were then taken and so the game began.

The pressure of this being their last game and also the determinant of their position in league loomed down on the lady bobcats as they began the game. The Mendez jaguars scored and were up with 4-0 in the first few minutes of the first quarter. As the game progressed, the lady bobcats scored and ended with the ultimate lead at the end of the fourth quarter with the final score being 41-31.

Senior Players:

  • Daniela Cayetano (ASGL)
  • Fortune Mamaril (ASGL)
  • Emily Carrillo (ASGL)
  • Anggia Daiva (ASGL)
  • Jennifer Moreno (ASGL)
  • Yetnaleci Maya (UCLA)
  • Vilma Campos (SVAH)

    I love how you included the names of the seniors that are “retiring,” giving them the recognition they deserve. Also, the optimism you carried throughout the article made it much more entertaining to read.

    I think it is great how the girls won the game on their senior night! I can already imagine how sad they felt knowing it was their last home game. This was a very interesting article to read!

    Nice job on your article! Personally, I never really attend home-games, so this reading this article was a great way for me to stay updated on the topic of RFK Basketball! I was impressed by your organization of the article, as well as its detail-oriented content. I learned a lot reading this!! :))

    It’s really sad to see such great players leave, but very happy to know that they won their last home game.
