Boyd-Buchanan’s Jett Gym was more crowded than usual at Friday night’s game against Copper Basin as alumni basketball players came back to “Shoot For 60.” The school has been celebrating its 60-year anniversary throughout the current school year.
All alumni basketball players were invited back to celebrate this milestone. After being recognized at halftime, the alumni were divided into two teams. The teams competed to see who could score 60 points first by shooting free throws.
Several members of the boys’ State Championship team from 1996 were present including Bopper Coppinger, Hunter Johnston, Chris Jones and Justin Robertson. These state champs were on the winning team once again as their alumni team won the “Shoot For 60” competition.
Boyd-Buchanan alumnus, Dr. Jason Robertson, enjoyed the excitement of Friday night basketball. Dr. Robertson commented on the alumni basketball night saying, “This was so much fun. I think we should do this every year.”
Boyd-Buchanan President, Jill Hartness, was pleased to see so many alumni. President Hartness affirmed, “This was a great event.”
Boyd-Buchanan School will continue to celebrate its 60-year heritage until the closing celebration in May.
