On Wednesday, Dec. 4, it was the closest competitive contest the faculty/staff had ever experienced during the annual Winter Sports Assembly basketball game. Trailing for three quarters (probably due to biased student officiating), the aging hoopsters tied the game up, 14-14. With only 10 seconds left, religion teacher Brandy Lindstrom makes (finally) a shot, and the student team couldn’t respond.
The teacher team wins, 16-14.
Even with his Superman cape, junior Will Roberson had no superpower to defeat the crowd favorites.
While this wasn’t the usual blowout the staff team is accustomed to, colorful commentators Kevin Meines and Mark Modarelli probably attributed the intense matchup to the distracting running tights donned by senior lineman, Elijah Klein.
Meines announced, “That’s a sight you just can’t get rid of. It’s burned into your retinas.”
Distracting, perhaps. But not effective against the likes of CFO Stephanie Cisakowski aka the Defensive Glove or 3-point shooter Chris Bernards (who calculated his own statistics during the game).
