CEN­TRE­VILLE — On Wed­nes­day, Feb. 22, The Gun­ston School ath­letes, coaches, friends, and fam­ily gath­ered to cel­e­brate the suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion of the 2016-17 win­ter ath­letic sea­son. Gun­ston’s var­sity and ju­nior-var­sity bas­ket­ball teams joined in an evening of cel­e­bra­tion. The mes­sage de­liv­ered by Head­mas­ter John Lewis and Di­rec­tor of Ath­let­ics Jon Mellinger was clear — the Herons have ar­rived as a strong com­peti­tor within the ESIAC (East­ern Shore In­de­pen­dent Ath­letic Con­fer­ence).

Both the boys and girls bas­ket­ball pro­grams have taken a large step in suc­cess in just two short years to be­come a threat in ev­ery con­test. Each team re­turns the ma­jor­ity of their starters and are poised to re­main com­peti­tors for the post­sea­son and a po­ten­tial cham­pi­onship run.

High­light­ing the event was the re­veal­ing of the ESIAC All-Con­fer­ence team. Mak­ing the Boys Var­sity Bas­ket­ball All-Con­fer­ence Team was sopho­more Malachi Gra­ham (First Team) and ju­nior Rick Ar­cham­bault (Hon­or­able Men­tion). Ju­nior Brennan Paddy made All-Con­fer­ence (First Team) for Girls Var­sity Bas­ket­ball, as well as sopho­more Marisa Pis­apia (Hon­or­able Men­tion).
