Bolles Celebrates ’89 Basketball Champs

Members of the 1989 Bolles boys’ basketball team gathered on January 11 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their winning the state championship that season. Team members and other basketball alumni and guests enjoyed a pre-game reception in the Bent Center Canteen prior to the Bolles-Bishop Kenny match-up that night. President and Head of School Tyler Hodges, current Bolles Head Coach Jason Hughes ’94 and legendary Bolles Basketball Coach Buddy Ward each welcomed the group which included 1989 team members Mike Hodge ’90, Tim Taylor ’89, Alan Verlander ’90, Kip Stone ’90, B.J. Thompson ’90, Tim Mason ’89, and team captain Sean Kelly ’89. Special guest Dr. Jim Tyson ’52, a member of Bolles’ first state championship basketball team in 1952, received special recognition at the reception as well. The 1989 team was honored during halftime of the Bolles-BK game to a loud ovation from the Bulldog faithful. The evening was capped by a 41-30 Bolles win!
