The 2019-2020 Sierra Canyon boys and girls basketball media day was a complete success.
More than 25 media outlets, including TV, radio and internet descended upon the gymnasium in Chatsworth for a chance to hear from the student-athletes, take photos and record video.
ESPN, Fox Sports, Fox News, Bleacher Report, SLAM, L.A. Times and Daily News were among the outlets in attendance.
The boys program was led by head coach Andre Chevalier and several players: Terren Frank, Harold Yu, Amari Bailey, Tookey Wigington, Brandon Boston, Shy Odom and Zaire Wade.
A quick rundown of the history of the program was said aloud and reporters then asked several questions.
The girls team was led by head coach Alicia Komaki and its trio of college-bound standouts: Ashley Chevalier (Texas), Vanessa DeJesus (Duke) and Alexis Mark (Boise St.)
Both teams won the California State Open Division championship last year; the first school ever to do so in the same school year.
The event was a smashing, positive affair complete with dinner catered by Brent’s Deli. Sierra canyon asst. athletic director and sports information director David Sobel was instrumental in putting the event on and making it happen.
