The culmination of a great basketball season includes hardware and accolades for a job well-done. Such was the case for Delta High School's boys basketball team. Coach Rob Ames' talented team collected the hardware for winning WSL titles for a league title, a district title and a regional win to enter this year's 3A State Boys Basketball Championships.
At Delta's recent honors banquet, pins, certificates and a generous supply of smiles and thank yous were shared among varsity, junior varsity and freshmen teams.
The Panthers also fared well at league meetings with five Delta players receiving 3A WSL All-Conference honors. All of Delta's starting five athletes were selected to this year's elite team.
Three seniors were honored with First Team selections including John Ames, Kyle Mock and Andrew Baier. A fourth senior, Jonathan Robinson, was an Honorable Mention selection, as was junior point guard Alexus Fausto.
Delta notched a sixth elite award with Delta coach Rob Ames being named the 3A WSL Coach of the Year.
