This year has been a rollercoaster of a season for the OAHS boys basketball team, mostly from how the team has suffered from numerous injuries.

The first injury that the team had was when guard Anthony Avila slipped on the wet gym floor during the warm-up portion of the Spartan’s league game against Santa Ynez. When Anthony slipped, he dislocated his knee and tore a piece of his tibia bone. Anthony has undergone a successful surgery and is climbing his way on the recovery ladder and will be back on the court very soon; he is important to the team and is missed by the players.

At the same game, junior Louie Ramos suffered a blow to the head early in the game and came out with a concussion that sat him out for about a week; his absence really hurt the team due to his position as the team’s shooting guard. Louie is now back on the court and quickly shook off the rust from being out for so long.

The injury that hurt the team the most was when senior Nick Dominguez suffered from a hairline fracture to his ankle. Nick is the go-to guard for the team and was the best ball handler and 3-pointer shooter. Obviously his absence was a huge hit for the young, growing Spartan basketball team. Nick is now back in the Spartan’s lineup, and the team has really benefitted from him being back.

Now that most of the injuries have been healed, the Spartans are working hard for next season. They are working to stay healthy as they finish the season against the Templeton Eagles in the last game of the 2015-16 basketball season.
