New State Champs Return To School

The Van Vandals returned to school, just two days after winning their first state basketball championship in more than sixty years.

The Vandals made a tradition of shaving their heads to promote team unity. Thanks to a preseason deal with his players, head coach Jerry Cassell was also sporting the buzzcut for school Monday.

Seniors Brandon Roberts and Andrew Thompson were both named to the 3A All-Tournament team. Roberts was also named MVP of the championship game.
