The season didn’t end the way the Los Altos High boys basketball team had hoped, but it lasted longer than some expected. The Eagles reached the Central Coast Section Division I semifinals as the sixth seed.

Los Altos faced a familiar foe in the Feb. 27 semis and, unfortunately for the Eagles, the result was familiar as well. No. 2 Los Gatos beat them for the third time this year, prevailing 76-54 at Piedmont Hills.
