Despite their loss against Lakeside High School Saturday, the Rogers High School basketball team had an incredible season. Not only inspiring their school, but an entire community.
Their success this season is no thanks to luck! It's their heart, drive, and teamwork that makes them winners.
Off the court, the Rogers boys basketball team has shown the community they are done playing defense. Defense against those who question what their capable of, because on the court they have shown it.
"We're no different than any other school," said Rogers Head Coach, Joel Soter. "Our players are no different than any other player in any other school."
It's been well over a decade since their last successful season. Now, regional champs, they're exceeding expectations, and silencing critics.
"These players have worked so hard for this," Soter said. "They've wanted this, they've expected this and to see it happen and to see their success and all of their hard work payoff has been great."
It's their hard work that continues to inspire the community.
