Court Gardner '96 Inducted to 2018 Athletic Hall of Fame

On Friday night, Pinewood inducted its newest member into the Athletic Hall of Fame, Court Gardner '96. Court was joined by his family, including our very own Upper Campus principal, and proud father, Mark.

Court Gardner ’96 played four years of basketball and baseball for the Panthers. During his senior year basketball season, Court averaged 22 points and 7 assists per game. His teams won back-to-back undefeated league titles and he was the league’s unanimous MVP his senior year. Court was an honor society member and winner of the Lynn Riches Award. After high school graduation, he went on to play two years of basketball at Cañada College, before finishing school at UCSD. Court currently lives and works in San Diego as a CPA and a Senior Accountant at Insurance Company oft he West. His wife, Carla, and he have two daughters, Molly and Brooke.

"(Mark) Gardner, who coached in Utah before moving to California in the mid-1980s, did, indeed, name his son for a basketball court, simply because he truly loves the sport. 'If Court had been a girl,' Gardner says with a grin, 'the name was going to be Anet.'"
