Taking the Ball back in Time

Taking the Ball back in Time

Did you ever think you’d see General McLane High School alumni from all the way back to 1974 running on the basketball court here at the high school again? On Nov. 24, an event organized by basketball coach Brian Schulz titled “The Alumni Basketball Game” took place. Current and old players wanted to get together with their teammates to catch up and play the game they love again. This inspired Mr. Schulz’s idea of the alumni game.

   High School basketball coaches Mr. Schulz and Mr. Stauffer were the coaches of the game as well as Mr. Roy Stauffer. Mr. Andy Schulz was the announcer of the game. The players were divided into two teams based off of their graduation year and whether they were an even or odd year. This helped them get to know other former players from other years as well.

    Following the Basketball game, Alumni had the perfect opportunity to sit and meet with their former teammates to catch up with each other while enjoying food and drinks provided by the General McLane Basketball Boosters. Fun was had by all, and because of the positive reactions given by people, Mr. Schulz plans to make this an annual event.
