The Week in Photos: Jan. 20-Jan. 26

Photos of this week’s academics, activities and athletics.
Spanish teacher Derek DeNileon counts Sumanth Kaja ‘27 and Dakota Dugan ‘28 down for their final answers during the seventh-period Basura Ball Competition Jan. 23. The name ‘Basura Ball’ translates to ‘Trash Ball’ due to the fashion of the ball, which is created from scraps of old tape by DeNileon himself, and is played to review for upcoming tests. The game itself divides players into two teams, from which one person is selected to represent the team. The two rival teams’ representatives go face-to-face to answer a Spanish question. The representative with the quickest correct answer receives one point and a chance to make a shot in the trash can for even more, depending on how far they stand from the trash can. “Tensions are high, but that’s just the way the Basura Ball bounces, man,” DeNileon said.

Point guard Owen Creeden ‘24 goes up for a layup during the varsity basketball game against Legend High School (LHS) Jan. 23. The Jags defeated the Titans 50-45. “Our league is better than it ever has been. Some teams considered towards the bottom are much better than they seem, and we knew that going in,” Assistant Basketball Coach Payton Holloway said. “And having a game like ThunderRidge late in the week [next week] can be emotional and rivalry. It’s easy to look past a team-like legend. I felt like Legend put us in some tough spots and good positions, but good teams always find a way to win.” (media by Will Rosenmeyer)
Surrounded by teammates, Mark Larson ‘25 prepares to shoot the basketball during the Unified home game against Legend High School (LHS) Jan. 23. At this game, the teams did not keep score. “My favorite part is just seeing the smiles on their faces and everybody unite with each other. For them, this is their happy place,” Special Education teacher Jerome Price said. (media by Rosie Benson)
Varsity wrestling captain Jon Herskovits ‘24 faces off against a Highlands Ranch High School (HRHS) wrestler at the Battle of the Ranch quad meet at HRHS Jan. 24. The team won 39-38 against HRHS, then lost 48-36 to ThunderRidge High School and lost 54-18 against Mountain Vista High School. The Jags placed third overall. “I expected it to be tough,” varsity wrestling captain Ryan Banks ‘24 said. “We did our best considering the team we have. We have a lot of injuries, people sick, skin conditions, so we had four or five people filling in from JV. Overall, we all wrestled hard and we did well.” (media by Claire Bauer)
Culty Clay ‘26 works on a free-time project in Graphic Design Jan. 25. In Graphic Design, students get the freedom to choose what projects to design, using tools such as Adobe Photoshop and other Adobe products to create graphics. “Photo editing is probably the hardest thing I’ve done as well as all the different settings and stuff you have to mess with,” Clay said.
