Staff Vs. Players [2019]

On March 26th the Hopewell Indians basketball teams took on the staff and volunteers in the annual “Staff Vs. Players” Game at Coshocton High School. The staff started strong and at the half were up— but the third and fourth quarters were a struggle. Once the final buzzer rang, the game was tied and the Staff and Players went into a 1 minute overtime. Just by the skin of their teeth, the Staff pulled off a win! Great job, everyone!
