Jefferson Basketball Alums Honored on 50th Anniversary

Back in 1963, the Jefferson High School basketball team was the toast of the town. Behind Hall of Fame coach Jack Van Reeth, the Jayhawks rolled off back-to-back state championships. Although they were underdogs going into the state tournament, senior Paul Prince hit a game-winning shot at the buzzer to lift them to their first title in school history.

Saturday night, the Tri-Valley Alumni Association honored the members and coaches of the 1963 and 1964 teams.
