The Juniors were able to collect $1,275.65 in total from the basketball game confirmed Jaspreet Kaur.

During the game, tacos Erik Jones’ advisory sold tacos. They were also able to donate eighty-seven dollars to the charity. Mrs. Ciubal’s advisory also joined in on the cause and sold pizza during lunch making $335 in total.

There were a total of three games during the event. Freshmen beat both the sophomores and juniors in back to back games. Then finally the juniors and seniors played with the juniors exacting their revenge beating the seniors by 10 points. 

“It felt good to beat the seniors with a fair chance this time but it feels even greater to know that I was making a difference and helping the people affected in paradise,” said Dino Velagic who was a player on the Juniors team during the game.

Overall Juniors were able to show a side of them that most teachers from Natomas Pacific Pathways Prep have not seen. Juniors made history this year with this rematch and we will see what they have to offer next.
