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.”
