All of the Players That Played In The Basketball Game

Exhilaration for this Friday’s White Out game is through the roof. For day two of White Out spirit week, Upper School students showed up to school decked out in neon colors. From 12:30pm to 1:00pm, during lunch, members of the girls and boys varsity Parker basketball teams faced Parker’s staff and faculty. 

The two, twelve minute halves were ardently announced by Benjamin Kagan ‘24. The student team was coached by Anya Landolt ‘23, and the staff and faculty were coached by Reilly Bruce.

The game began with strong starting lineups from both sides. Taking the floor for the students was Caleb David ‘23, Owen Stepen ‘23, Lucy Wrubel ‘23, Quinn Kass ‘24, and Calan Scherer ‘24. Reilly Bruce, Madeline Maldonado, Dan Greenstone, Samuel Koone, and Ethan Levine started for the faculty and staff. 

Throughout the game, an engaged audience cheered for their friends.

Highlights of the heated game include Scherer powerfully deflecting Bruce three-pointer, and when Miles Johnson drained a three-pointer during the second half. 

“I really loved getting to play against the staff and faculty and getting hype for the White Out game.” explains Kass.

With a final score of 37 to 14, the students took home a decisive win.

Overall, the game was a great success. Everyone enjoyed the game and is looking forward to the White Out game.
