Amphi Champs
Their faces say it all. Amphitheater High School basketball players were jubilant Feb. 26 after beating Tempe High School 87-77 to win the school’s first 4A-II state championship since opening in 1939. The Panthers’ high scorers included juniors Tim Derksen with 26 points, Tony Lillard with 19 points, and Charles Benson with 12. With so many team members returning next year, Amphi is anticipating another exceptional season. courtesy photo
