The boys basketball team had already accomplished more than they had in previous seasons going into their regional first round game at Chantilly. While the loss was a disappointing end to the season, a season full of accomplishments allows the team to hold their heads high.

The boys team finished fifth in the conference, better than their sixth place finish the previous year. At 10-13, they had won six more games as well. Two of those wins were against rival Yorktown, their first victories against Yorktown in four years. “Beating Yorktown twice as a senior is something that I will always remember and will be forever proud of,” senior Sean Killaea said.

The Generals faced off against Fairfax in the first round of the Liberty Conference playoffs on February 18. The game went into overtime, where the Generals pulled away to a 57-49 victory. The Generals went on to lose to Langley in the next round.

In the regional round, Chantilly was the boys opponent. The game saw the Generals have a lead of 10 points at the half, only to lose it in the fourth quarter. The Generals lost 53-43 after Chantilly started to make more shots down the stretch.

The difference between two seasons for the Generals proved to be great, as this senior led team started a new age for basketball at the school. “We came together and built a team we were proud of,” senior Evan Schadelbauer said. “I wish things could have lasted longer.”
