The loss ends the Bulldog careers of 9 seniors who put their heart and soul into the program over the past four years. Their leadership and work ethic will be missed. The culture they cultivated throughout their careers is what the lower levels should be looking up to. Congratulations to Dylan Meehan, Jamir Truman, and Paul Zilinskas for being named to the Metro Suburban Conference, All-Conference team. Best of luck to all seniors on their future endeavors. You will always be part of the Bulldog Basketball family!
