On Dec. 8, the Teachers vs. Students co-ed basketball game will take place at 6:00 p.m. at the home of the Raiders. Students will be allowed to attend the event and see if the young guns can upset the elders on the hardwood.

A select team of teachers will be competing against a volunteer squad of students in a game intended to provide a fun opportunity and drum up school spirit. The environment is sure to be competitive and will be  well worth anyone’s time to spend on a Saturday night. All spectators all welcome to watch for a $2 entry fee. Tickets can be purchased from any member of the boys basketball team and all proceeds will benefit the school’s Habitat for Humanity club.

Seniors Dante Walker and Rupak Stephen  have been the pioneers of organizing the first annual Student vs. Teachers basketball game. Both boys have played instrumental roles in getting together teams and spreading the word about the game.

“I want to see this become an annual event, and centering the night around the sport of basketball is a great way to bring the community together,” Walker said. “Basketball needs a bigger emphasis in Hillsborough and I believe this event is a good way to propel that.”

The squad of teachers balling will feature some popular faces. The history, phys-ed, and English departments are among those being represented in the game. English teacher Vin Cuccaro, business teacher Kevin Carty, history teacher Andrew Mehring, and physical education teacher Larry Johnson will be some of the teachers ready to hoop it up against their younger counterparts.

As for the students, seniors Luc Hackel, Tommy Zdroik, and Norm Washington will join juniors John Seaton and Frank “The Tank” will complete the squad’s starting lineup.

The expectations for the students are high, but definitely achievable. More importantly, big turnout of students would be great for school spirit and improve the chance of the students taking the dub, not to mention giving some funds to an organization helping those in need.
