March Madness tournament comes to SHS

With the approach of the NCAA March Madness tournament, the ASB, in conjunction with the Sports and Athletics Commission, will hold an intramural basketball tournament starting March 1.

According to ASB board representative senior Neel Kattumadam, the inspiration behind this tournament were other schools such as Monta Vista and Cupertino High School, which both have their own annual March Madness tournament.

Winners of the intramural tournament will get four tickets to a Golden State Warriors game.

Signups start early February on Facebook or in the office. The games will take place at lunch, tutorial and after school.  

Kattumadam encourages students to sign up fast since there is a 16-team limit. In addition, each team will be required to have two boys and two girls and have a limit of two players who play basketball on the school’s teams. The games will be played with a 4 on 4 format and be full court.

Through the tournament, Kattumadam hopes to bring all four classes together and make up for the lack of school activities between now and Spring Fling.

“Many times people are separated by sports or other school organizations and basketball is a quick sport to pick up, so I hope March Madness is able to unite people at our school,” Kattumadam said.
