This group of Knights saw a little bit of everything during their prep basketball careers.
Those careers culminated Monday night with a final regular season game.
St. Joseph girls basketball players Alexis Brackett, Natalie Reynoso and Zayda Altheide were honored on senior night inside Hofschulte Gymnasium Monday night as the Knights hosted Templeton in an Ocean League game.
The trio was introduced before the game and had a moment on the court with parents and family members before the Knights closed out their regular season.
St. Joseph won just two games a year ago and were winless in league, but Brackett, Renyoso and Altheide, regular starters for this St. Joseph group, have helped the Knights improve to over 10 wins this year and a winning record in league.
The Knights also went through a mid-season coaching change a year ago and transitioned into the Ocean League this season under head coach Analise Riezebos.
Brackett, a shooting guard, was joined on the court Monday by her parents Scott and Kellie. Brackett plans on attending Hancock College and hopes to transfer to Cal Poly thereafter and study Ag Business.
Reynoso was escorted on the court by parents Jae and Pat along with her sister Sophia. Reynoso, a captain along with the two other seniors, will likely not continue her basketball career after this senior season is complete. She hopes to attend a four-year university directly after graduating to study Business Administration and work in HR.
Altheide was joined on the court by her mother Masumeh and father Clint, as well as sister Vashti and brother Sebastian. Altheide plans on attending Ole Miss after graduating from St. Joseph.
Altheide will have earned 14 varsity letters by the time she graduates, participating in basketball, volleyball, golf, swim and track and field. She's also a member in six clubs, is a youth minister and is the senior class treasurer. She said she hopes to study Nursing at Ole Miss and coach basketball in the future.
