Trojans are the State Champions!

2015 NCHSAA 4A Champions

2015 NCHSAA 4A Champions

Garner finishes off their record-breaking season with 70-64 win over nationally #39 Ardrey Kell. Super senior Julius Barnes leads the Trojans (28-1) with 26 points and Tournament MVP. Garner races to an 18 point lead and then hold off a furious Mustangs comeback that saw the Garner lead cut to one. But Barnes ices the game from the free throw line down the stretch to claim the first school team title since the 2008 Trojan Cheerleaders. Nick Kuhns¬†, who was awarded the NCHSAA Sportsmanship Award prior to the game, added 13. Kell led by six seniors in compiling 28-2 record while Garner’s underclassman prove the better in the school’s first finals appearance since the 1936 squad.

And extra kudos to the awesome Blue Crew for their ardent cheering for the Southeast Raleigh girls who fell in their NCHSAA 4A title game. Upon arrival in the Dean Dome, The Crew cheered the Lady Bulldogs back from a double-digit deficit, as they narrowed the Myers Park lead to just 5 and brought most of the crowd to their feet. Excellent representation of our school and support for a conference rival.
