For the first time in Fairmont Prep history both the boys and girls basketball teams made the Orange County Top 25.
The Lady Huskies came in at number three in the county!
The Orange County Register wrote, “The Huskies will be one of the most experienced teams in the county. They return all five starters from last season, led by Albany-committed point guard Izzy Om. Fairmont Prep still resides in ultra-competitive Division 1 and counts Orangewood Academy as its chief rival in the San Joaquin League.”
Our guys came in at number 10.
“Second-year coach Joedy Gardner, who previously coached at JSerra, has remodeled the Huskies into one of Orange County’s better small-school teams if no eligibility issues derail the project. Atin Wright (6-1, Jr., G) was on the Press-Telegram Dream Team last season when he was at Lakewood. Kofi Aboagye (6-2, Sr., G) was an outstanding scorer and rebounder last season for the Huskies who finished 21-6 and reached the CIF-SS Division 5AAA quarterfinals. Pape Cisse (6-8, So., G/F) and Abel Jimenez (6-4, Sr., G) will help propel what could be a potent offense.”
We are incredibly proud of both teams for all of their hard work and dedication during the preseason. Come witness history by attending a home game and supporting our basketball program this season.
On another exciting note, our boys’ teams will be playing at the STAPLES Center on January 14, 2019. Don’t miss out on this fantastic opportunity, tickets are limited purchase tickets to the STAPLES game. Our goal is to take over an entire section at STAPLES, we need your support!
