“Darrell has been the senior anchor for the Trojans basketball team. He has displayed great leadership, toughness, and coach-ability throughout the season, which has propelled Auburn to a 23-5 record and a berth in the 4A state tournament. Darrell always plays much bigger than he is and is asked to guard bigger players. He has never backed down from a challenge and always works as hard as he can.”

From the Sideline

“Senior wrestler Reanne Wilson battled through the recent sub-regional wrestling tournament at Kent-Meridian. She pinned her way to the semifinals before losing to last year’s second-place state finisher in her weight class. She then had to win two more matches to place high enough and advance to regionals. Reanne finished third on the day. Raeann has been a leader and great contender for Auburn wrestling, and is also a member of our swim and water polo teams.”
