The Arete Prep Boys Basketball team made history yesterday, winning the programs first AIA Region Tournament Championship. The #3 seed Chargers knocked off #2 Ray 48-47 in a Tuesday Semifinal. They returned to Fort Thomas Thursday and beat #1 seeded hosts 56-51. Erik Baker led the charge with 15 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists. Fellow Senior Guard Joey Patrick had 15 points and 9 rebounds. Sean Baker is back from illness and posted a double double with 11 points and 12 boards. Fort Thomas had taken the regular season meeting between the two but the motivated Chargers were at their best, when their best was required!
Next up, Arete Prep will play in the AIA 1A State Tournament, on 2/15 in Prescott. Opponent and location are TBD.
Congratulations coaches and players. Thank you to everyone who traveled to support the boys at the tournament!
