Best Team: Poly Basketball

Through Poly’s men’s varsity basketball we bore witness to the idea that basketball is a vessel through which kids can learn life skills, bond, escape, express, and grow on and off the court through effort, dedication, and communication. From the first practices and study hall sessions the team came together through losses to nationally ranked teams early in the season to prepare for teams in Baltimore and the surrounding locales. The 2016-17 team featured on the cover of City Paper made history and capped off the season with a storybook ending, winning the school’s first state championship by one point.
