Tuesday, February 11th was as exciting day, as we had the chance to celebrate two senior night events for a total of seven incredible student-athletes from the varsity soccer and varsity basketball teams!
First up, varsity soccer took on Crystal Springs at El Camino Park in a tight battle. Each team entered the contest with similar records, so we knew it could be close. Casti took the lead in the first half, but CSUS proved to be a little too tough in the second half taking the win in the end. This was the last game of the season for your Gators. Castilleja is currently tied with CSUS for second in the league with just a few games remaining for other teams. After the game, the huge Casti crowd full of family, friends, and Casti employees gathered to celebrate two incredibly dedicated seniors, Ally and Georgia! We are so proud of their leadership and accomplishments over their years on the Castilleja soccer team – Way to go seniors!
Soon after, varsity basketball held their senior celebration for five awesome students – Athena, Lauren, Naomi, Sammy, and Anna! These five have committed many years to the Castilleja basketball program, and we are so appreciative of their hard work and many contributions. Following the celebration, your Gators played an enthralling game with dramatic comebacks, clutch three-point shots, and a game-winning overtime period! The final score was 61-55 in OT, and the crowd went nuts! This team went on to beat their next opponent on Thursday, and they have their last game of the regular season this upcoming Tuesday, February 18th at 5:30 pm at Castilleja vs. Harker. Come out and support this tremendous group of fighters as they try to win their final game to make it to the CCS tournament.
Congrats to all our student-athletes, coaches, and especially our seniors!!!
