Friday night was Homecoming and also the end of the regular season. On a very busy evening, the Trojans enjoyed a great crowd as the gym was packed for Homecoming night. The night began with Trojan players Jimmy Larkin, Aaron Snoeyink, and Chris Ridolphi walking out with the Homecoming court. Congratulations to these men on their selection by their classmates. Also congratulations to Chris Ridolphi who was named the Homecoming King.
After pictures, it was time to quickly change from the suits to the uniforms for the basketball game against the Fenton Bison. Unfortunately, the Trojans came out flat in the first half and found themselves behind at halftime by a score of 29-18. Behind the hot shooting of Danny Leach (30 pts, 2 rebs, 2 assists, 1 stl) the Trojans were able to regroup and finish strong in the second half. The final score saw the Trojans secure a victory by a score of 55-53. Chris Ridolphi (9 pts, 6 rebs, 4 assists, 1 stl), Matt Morrison (6 rebs, 3 stls, 2 pts), Tyler VanderBrug (6 pts, 4 rebs, 2 assists, 1 stl), Connor VanderBrug (8 pts, 3 assists, 2 rebs, 1 stl), Luke Davidson (2 pts, 1 reb, 1 assist), Matt Robinson (4 rebs),and Aaron Snoeyink (1 reb)all cracked the stat sheet on the evening.
