After a disappointing six game losing streak, varsity basketball bounced back with an impressive win against the West Springfield Spartans. The boys barely won by a narrow score 58-54. With the season coming to an end, lets hope our Atoms can get fired up and keep up the good work.

After the win against West Springfield, Senior Dontae Johnson had 21 pts, the highest on the team. Senior Jordan Adams followed Johnson with 16 points. The Atoms were in the lead in the second and third quarter.

Senior Youni Eskinder has played varsity for the past 2 years. Eskinder felt that his team has stepped up big. “I felt we played very good, some aspects we had to clean up like on the defensive side. We’re happy to come out with the win,” Eskinder said.

With their next game away against T.C. Williams, the boys look to improve from last game against T.C. and win. “I felt like T.C. disrespected us in our own house. They also think we’re not a threat in the conference. We are looking for revenge,” Eskinder said.

With four more games in the season, the Atoms are looking to come in clutch and finish strong.
