The varsity girls basketball team edged out a 44-40 win against the Mercy Burlingame Crusaders as they celebrated their senior night on Tuesday evening.

The senior night consisted of a ceremony recognizing the seniors as well as the game itself. Posters were made beforehand by the seniors’ friends and teammates to honor and celebrate them.

“These girls mean a lot more to me than just teammates. They’re kind of my sisters, people who I look forward to meeting every day, people I lean on. For them to organize all of this for us, it really means a lot. Then, in the game, having their support means everything to me,” Akhila Ramgiri (12) said.

Along with Akhila, players Prameela Kottapalli (12) and Lily Wancewicz (12), and team manager Anusha Kuppahally (12) were recognized.

After a close game, the Eagles beat the Crusaders 44-40, with Akhila leading the team with 19 points. With this win, the girls’ overall record moves to 11-7, while their league record now stands at 2-4. 

“It’s really exciting. It’s been really cool to play for four years and see everything develop. I got to meet all these new people and form relationships and close connections with them,” Lily said.

The girls host Crystal Springs on Friday at 6:30 p.m. in the Athletic Center.
