Varsity Boys Basketball Team Wins South Granville Holiday Invitational

Congratulations are in order for the Varsity Boys Basketball Team!

The Ravens won this year's South Granville Holiday Invitational with a 64-54 win over Knightdale High School.

The team defeated Northern Vance High School 73-64 and Chapel Hill High School 70-60 on their way to the finals against the Knights on Dec. 30, 2017. Chris Barnette '18 (in photo at right, third from right in front row) was named the tournament's Most Valuable Player, and Jack Hemphill '18 was named to the five-member All-Tournament Team.

"What a great win for our young team," said Kevin Billerman, who is in his 18th year as the team's head coach. "One of our goals each year is to win the holiday tournament, and I'm proud we accomplished that goal."

The wins in the tournament helped propel the team to their current record of 16-7 for the season. Their most recent win, on Jan. 31, marked Billerman's 400th career victory.
