The Seward County Saints and Lady Saints basketball teams will be hosting the 10th Annual Saints Bookstore Basketball Preview Night Thursday, at 6:00 p.m. in the Greenhouse on the campus of SCCC/ATS.
Admission to the event is free, with all proceeds going to support the Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Haskell, Stevens, and Seward Counties. Donations will be accepted at the door and at the concession stand throughout the night.
The night will officially begin at 5:30 p.m. with both basketball teams signing autographs in SW229 C/D (upstairs conference rooms) for the public to attend. FREE posters of the men’s and women’s basketball teams will be handed out, and the public can have the Saints and Lady Saints autograph their posters. The public will also get a chance to meet the cheerleading team and dance team before the start of the benefit night in the gym.
The Basketball Benefit Night will showcase the Seward County Saints and Lady Saints basketball teams as they will be introduced, and both teams will scrimmage for 10 minutes at the end of the night. The cheerleaders and Saintsations Dance Team will also be introduced and perform their first routine of the school year.
There will be a free-throw contest with Saints coaches Bryan Zollinger and Patrick Nee vs. Lady Saints’ coaches Toby Wynn and Caitlin Demarest. The Saints and Lady Saints will square off in a Battle of the Sexes three-point contest, and fans will be able to get into the action with a pair of contests just for them.
Also come with your camera’s ready as there will be a slam dunk contest between four high-flying Saints players to conclude the contest portion of the evening. Keep your eyes on the skies as 150 FREE Saints Basketball T-Shirts will be thrown out throughout the night thanks to the Saints Bookstore.
