EHS All Star Basketball Classic
On Friday, March 20th, the EHS All Star Basketball Classic, presented by the marketing department and DECA, was a fun time for all. This curriculum driven event was put on by the Advanced Sports and Entertainment marketing class. What a great job they did! In the class vs. class round robin tournament, the seniors squeaked out a close 1 point win, 31-30, in the championship game, for the right to take on the “not so high flying” faculty all-star team. Seniors Drew Lakey and Shyanne Carr had great shooting form and won the 3 point shot competition and Senior Yonis Mohamud won a tough slam dunk competition. To cap off a great night, in the final event, the seniors dominated the faculty team. Thank you to all those who participated and attended the event.
