Monrovia High School Celebrates 50th Anniversary of Historic Boys Basketball CIF Championship Win

Amid raucous cheers and thunderous applause, Monrovia High School kept history alive through a special ceremony recognizing the 50th anniversary of its first boys basketball CIF Southern Section Championship title.
“When students work together to achieve a goal, the results are often impressive – in the case of the 1967 Monrovia High School basketball team, they were historic,” Monrovia Unified Superintendent Dr. Katherine Thorossian said. “It is important to highlight these accomplishments, even 50 years later, to remind students that hard work can transform dreams into reality.”
The Feb. 9 celebration, which took place during halftime of the final boys varsity home game, recounted the thrilling tale of the 1967 game as the school unveiled a commemorative banner based on an illustration displayed in the school 50 years ago. The banner will hang in the gym paying homage to the team’s history and inspiring future players.
