Boys Basketball team celebrate a win during the final seconds of the game.

Central Kitsap High School’s Boys Varsity Basketball Team went against Capital High School for the final game of the season on Monday, February 5. For the last three consecutive years, the boys basketball team has lost in the final games of each season.

“Before the game, we all looked at each other and told each other that we are not losing on senior night because for the past few years we have been blown out during the final game,” said senior and team captain Landon Frandsen.

CKHS was down by one point heading into the beginning of quarter two, but after a timeout, the CKHS Cougars started forming a lead against Capital.

During halftime, crowd members could pay one dollar to try and make a half court shot to win a prize. Many people lined up to take the shot but out of the 30 people, only one of them was successful. The remaining seven minutes of halftime was filled with other crowd members attempting to recreate the shot.

Throughout the game, there were a few breakout players such as senior athletes Max Foster and Aidan Moore scoring a combined total of 44 points. This result is a complete contrast to the loss that CKHS faced on the February 1 match, where Capital defeated CK by 10 points.

For senior players, this was their last game in high school which made them want to take more risks. For some senior players, this season has felt like a countdown, feeling trepidation for the last game and significant pressure to perform.

“Every game, no matter win or lose, was like a countdown to our final game,” said senior captain Kohen Baumgartner. “Even [if] we weren’t winning, I enjoyed every single minute with my friends.”
