@GonzagaHoops are WCAC Champs – Second Title in Three Years

The varsity basketball team won the WCAC championship on February 27, defeating Paul VI Catholic HS, 68-55, to earn its second title in three years. The decisive victory marked the culmination of a dominant performance in the tournament, in which the Eagles defeated Bishop Ireton 62-47 in the quarterfinals, and then St. John’s 66-33 in the semifinals.

In front of a packed house at American University’s Bender Arena, the Eagles controlled the championship game from the start, thanks in large part to strong rebounding and unrelenting defense. Senior guard Chris Lykes led the scoring with 20 points, while junior forward Myles Dread put up 13 and junior guard Prentiss Hubb had 11.
“We just worked so hard for this,” Dread told The Washington Post through tears after the game. Click here or on the image to read the full write-up in the Post.
