Senior Vs. Staff basketball game

The Senior vs. Staff basketball game took action on Friday, May 18th. This game was a way to keep the seniors and teachers blood flowing as we close off this school year! The game took place during 7th hour & before the game started, the senior side in the stands filled at a rapid rate. The seniors were guaranteed to win the basketball game to show the staff who’s boss and that’s what ended up happening.

Highland Park Senior High hosts an event called the Senior vs. Staff basketball game every year. It’s a moment for the students to show the staff who’s in charge and for the staff to show the seniors what they’re made of. With the help of the Senior Class Council, they helped organize the whole game. Each half was 16 minutes. There are a total of six teams with 5 people per team. Every few minutes there would be a rotation so everyone would be able to participate.

Since there were rotations, everyone had the opportunity to show what they could do, and to prove that the seniors rule the school.

After the first half ended, the Senior Class Council introduced a halftime shooting game that lasted 3 minutes. One team was on the left side of the court while the other was on the right. Each team consisted of six people and the team with the most points at the end of the 3 minutes would win. So, the Senior Class Council took some initiative and picked 6 random people from the stands, and as an audience we all sat back and cheered for everyone. People got some water and were ready to be put back in the game.

Some of the things people liked about the game were the different skills some of the players carried. People even admitted that the staff had skills too, and were surprised when some of the seniors were getting crossed.

With all the hard work each and every player put in, the game ended with the staff winning: 59 to 58. We asked one of the staff what they thought about the game and one replied with, “I think the scoreboard is cheating, we scored more points than that.”

This is one of the events people get excited for because it’s exhilarating to watch and it’s always fun to cheer for your favorite player. Although no team gets bragging rights, this game was a close one and everybody’s a winner. #ClassOf’18
