Welcome home, Champs!

The entire school came out to greet our Cooper Macs last week when they returned home from the Sarachek Tournament in New York, for the second time in our school's history,  as the Tier II Champs (if you are wondering when the first time was, here is a clue courtesy of Coach Pace Cooper).

During the lunch time pep rally, Coach Richard Lewis summarized each of the games and described how our boys overcame the most improbable odds to accomplish this feat.  The students were then treated to this slideshow which pays tribute to what has been a magical season for Coach Lewis and the Cooper Macs:

 In case you missed  it, the Commercial Appeal also got in on congratulating our boys.  Sports columnist John Varlas began his Sunday piece this week as follows:

There's a high school basketball team in Memphis that just completed its most successful season ever, finishing the year ranked among the country's top teams. Led by a talented junior point guard that averages 21 points per game, this team finished its year by winning its division in a national level tournament. 
And chances are, this is the first time you're hearing about it...

Read the rest of Varlas's column here and, in case you haven't done so already, be sure to let our boys know that they made us proud.
