Multiple Teams · Porter and Gardner Earn First Team All-Area Honors


The Los Altos Basketball Team had another 20 win season and captured its 5th Straight Hacienda League Championship. The Conquerors only lost 4 games in the 2019-20 campaign and went undefeated in league play. While basketball is a team sport and the team as a whole had a successful year, two young men were honored by the local media outlet for their efforts.

Senior Dion Porter was named First Team All-Area by the San Gabriel Valley Tribune. Porter followed up a solid junior season with a senior campaign that saw him step us as the Conquerors main offensive threat. Porter’s ability to hit from the outside and slash to the basket made him a difficult matchup for opponents. Dion also earned First Team All-League honors.

In addition to Porter, freshmen big man Jazz Gardner also earned First Team All-Area honors for his efforts in his first high school season. Gardner was a force in the paint, blocking shots and grabbing rebounds, in addition to his offensive contributions. Jazz was also named the Hacienda League MVP in his first year and was recently recognized by Max Preps, making the National Freshmen All-American Team as an Honorable Mention.
