The Eagles boy’s basketball team hoisted the first place trophy in the California Invitational Tournament on Saturday after defeating the hosting California Pintos 70-56.

Returning starters Rece Gilmore, Tyson Smith and Nik Post lead the way along with a handful of returning players from last year’s 23-3 team. Blake Dapkus and Trenton Roney also stepped up into a starting role. With a mixture of size, speed and athleticism this year’s team was able to take home the first place crown.

Head Coach Andy Jahnsen says the team is really playing well.
