For the second year in a row, the students and faculty played a full-court basketball game. Students paid $2 to watch the game, and all of the money raised went to the Goodwill Art Show. Current senior cheerleaders Neil Stewart, Sara Thomas Easley, Emme Aldridge, and Mary Rogers Merrell were in charge of making this game happen. Neil Stewart said, “It was so fun to watch and organize and I’m glad everyone came to support a good cause!” Russell Weathersby was the announcer for the game; Olivia Thigpen and Coach Cory Caton were referees.

The senior cheerleaders chose the seniors who played in the game, and the faculty, who played volunteered. The game was played in 12 minute halfs with people shooting half court shots for Chick-fil-a gift cards in between halfs. Senior Sarah Avery Huffman said, “The student/faculty basketball game is always fun to watch.” It was looking like a blowout from the beginning, but a little 2nd half magic from the students and score-keeper kept this ballgame close. In the end, the faculty topped their students 34-33.
