Prefect Council hosted the second annual March Madness Basketball Tournament on Monday in Taper Gym.

16 teams, each made of 3-4 students, competed in a bracket prepared by the Prefect Council days prior. The gym was sectioned off into four different courts, as different matches took place simultaneously.

Team GYGR, including Nevin Sanitsky ’18, Mason Hooks ’20, Simon Pompan ’18 and Holden McRae ’20, won the tournament after beating Team Sierra Canyon in the finals.

Students watched the games and cheered on the players to commemorate March Madness, the annual National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) college basketball tournament.

“I think [March Madness] definitely brings the community together because it’s a great way for everyone to get involved in something they wouldn’t normally do with people they wouldn’t always compete with,” Mirabella Wong ’20 said.
