Our BLUE OUT is where we play an inter-school game of basketball that includes the 7th and 8th grade teams.
The kids that played on the 7th/8th grade boys' and girls' team will be placed on either the 'Blue' team, or 'White' team. It is a fun way for the kids to end the season and a way to recognize our 8th graders before they graduate in May. We will have a SHOOTING CONTEST at half-time, so bring the kids out to shoot!
It is fun for the kids to play one last game with their peers, and it is more fun if there is a crowd to cheer them on.
EVERYONE IS WELCOME!
WE WOULD LOVE TO SEE YOU ALL THERE, CURRENT, AND FUTURE CYCLONES!
