8th-grade vs. faculty basketball game

Submitted by sam.mcgrath on Fri, 01/26/2018 - 15:19

Last Friday, we held our annual 8th-grade vs. faculty basketball game. Every year the 8th-graders get the chance to go up against their teachers in a 25 minute, full-court contest. It was a lot of fun listening to students cheer on their fellow students as they brought their best game against some of the teachers. 

Most cheer for the student team, but, every year, there is always a small group of 9th-graders who cheer for the teachers.
