For the first time in several years, the Seneca boy's basketball team made the Louisville Invitational Tournament!  After beating DeSales in the opening round, Seneca matched up with Bullit East in the quarterfinal game.  After dispatching Bullit East, the team stunned Ballard in the semi-finals to reach the final game on Saturday, January 19, against No. 1 Seed Trinity.  After a hard-fought game, Seneca received Runner-Up honors in the final game of the LIT.    
Kimbro's Jersey to be Retired

Join us on Friday, January 25, for a ceremony to retire Tony Kimbro's basketball jersey.  The ceremony will take place at halftime of the boy's Homecoming game THIS Friday.  Seneca has much to be proud of, not the least of which is our excellent basketball program.  Come celebrate the accomplishments of Tony Kimbro '85.  Girl's game starts at 5:30.  Homecoming Court will be presented between games and the boy's game starts at 7:00.
