Teacher hoopapalooza


Sitka High and Mt. Edgecumbe faculty basketball teams outlived the clock Friday night (3-30-12) in a benefit game at the BJ McGillis gym. Students from the two schools have partnered in an effort to raise $60,000 for a girls’ school in Afghanistan. Mt. Edgecumbe student Annaliese Moll said she didn’t know how much this event raised, “but the cash box is overflowing!” Not only teachers had fun: After the 3rd quarter buzzer, a student flash-mob stormed the court, giving the faculty-athletes some additional rest. Nevertheless, when play resumed and a Sitka fast-break unravelled in mid-court, one student was heard to say, “This could be our first heart attack of the night.”

Sitka was the winner 47-43, but these pictures demonstrate that this game had no losers.
