Unified team vs. staff basketball game
March 13, 2017
Spirit Week is always an exciting week at HB, with all of the festivities and clothing attire. To kick off this year’s Spirit Week, there was a basketball game between the Unified Team and the Staff of HB during the opening ceremonies. The game was one 10-minute period with the Unified Team coming out on top, beating the Staff 14 to 4. Even though the game was basically a blow out, it still had the crowd on their toes, and it was a fun time for the players.
Garrett Maloney ‘18 said, “It was really fun getting that experience with the kids and it makes them really happy to go up against all the people that help them out every day. It’s awesome that our school does that every year and I know that those kids really enjoy and appreciate it. They love true competition with the staff and were looking forward to it ever since they heard the game was going to happen.”
The staff also enjoyed the game immensely and had fun playing against the kids they teach. English teacher Ann Melim said, “It was fun and I was surprised how good some of the teachers were at basketball.” The game was a nice, friendly competition, and is a great ritual to kick off spirit week at HB.
