Prior the Varsity Game, the Varsity Makos arrived to the Key Biscayne Community Center in polo shirts.

When the game began starting, the Varsity Makos ran out energetically to begin their warm-ups for the game. Right before tip off, the seniors were announced onto the court as the crowd cheered.

The varsity Makos were down going into the second half, however energy was still high as the MAST Academy’s Dance Crew did a performance.

Although Key West beat the Makos, the senior night was not about winning the game. After the game, Coach Phillips gave a speech to the team as the seniors received their flowers.
