No matter how you measure success, last Friday night was a success for the Eagles of Eastern Christian High School.
In the school’s first “Community Basketball Night” of the season, the play on the court matched the amped up atmosphere of a packed house as the varsity Eagles defeated the Bulldogs of Rutherford by a score of 53-43.
The Pep Band, Student section,and play by play all added to the event. The Swag Shop was full of great food and EC Spirit Wear sales. The halftime contest featured “Bags-ketball”- the opportunity for fans to shoot a free throw with a paper bag on their head for a prize in the swag shop. The clear highlight of halftime was when EC 4th Grade teacher Donna Hoogerhyde sunk her Bags-ketball shot. The crowd erupted.
If you missed out on the fun, fear not. There’s another Community Basketball Night coming right up this week. EC will take on rival neighbors Manchester High School. Girls JV at 4:00 PM. Girls Varsity tips off at 5:30 PM and Boys Varsity at 7:00 PM. Come on out and join the fun!
