On Friday, April 6, the Halifax Elementary School 6th grade students faced off against the Halifax Hoopsters in a competitive basketball game.
For the past twenty-four years the Hoopsters, a team made up of Halifax Elementary School teachers and administrators, have taken on the sixth graders to raise money for the Halifax Teachers Association Scholarship. This scholarship is given to a deserving Silver Lake Senior from Halifax.
Six teams of 6thgraders faced off against two separate teams of Hoopsters in front of a crowd of parents and friends. The 6th graders started out strong and held the lead for most of the night.
At half-time the younger kids got involved with a Shoot-To-Win competition, parents purchased raffle tickets and got snacks in the cafeteria.
The Hoopsters made a comeback in the second half, but the sixth graders squeaked out a 94-93 victory. As the sixth graders celebrated on the court everyone agreed it was a great night for a great cause.
