The 2016-17 Varsity Basketball team had its most successful season in over 12 years, winning 16 games and advancing deep in the play-offs. The Bearcats had a very strong pre-season schedule, playing and beating some of the section’s top teams.
The Varsity team held their own in league play and competed well against every team in the PAL. For all Bearcats, the game vs. Burlingame is always circled on the schedule, but the Panthers owned a 28 game winning streak. The 2016-17 Varsity Basketball team ended that streak and after 16 years, San Mateo Basketball reigned supreme over Burlingame.
The Bearcats won two games in the CCS Division 2 Basketball Play-offs and advanced to the quarterfinals to cap off a fantastic season.
