Highland hoops reunion set for Dec. 22

Former Raider players are returning for fun and games




Highland alumni basketball organizers are putting out the call for former senior boy and senior girl basketball players to get out those old sneakers, socks, ankle and knee braces and heed the call to come to the annual grad games at the Highland gym.

The fun goes Thursday, Dec. 22 and the gym will be open at 5:15 p.m.

The grad girls and senior girls will play at 6 p.m. followed by a grad men vs. grad men game at 7 p.m. Survivors from that game get to take on the current senior boys team at approx. 8 p.m. “Afterwards a social (TBA) will be held so that grads can enhance stories about their high school careers!” an event spokesperson said.

For further information contact Hugh MacKinnon at 250-339-0661 or Syd “The Kid” Moncrief at 250-792-3313.

Grads and students are asked to bring cans or dry goods for the local food bank to be dropped off at the door of the gym.


“And, of course, fans, friends and even old referees are welcome,” the spokesperson added.
