Holiday Hoops Alumni Basketball Games
15th Annual Holiday Hoops Blue Pony Alumni Basketball Games
Havre Public Schools Education Foundation was host to the 15 th Annual Holiday Hoops Blue Pony Alumni Basketball Games, held Friday, December 27, 2019 at Havre High School gymnasium at 7 pm. Admission to the game was a non-perishable food item or toiletry item to be donated to the Havre Public Schools Pantry.
The evening was easy going and relaxing, just what is needed after the busy Christmas holiday. Alumni enjoy getting together for a ‘just for fun’ game and friends, family and fans have a great time cheering on their favorite alum. This year there was a new twist for the teams. One team was ‘The Fossil’s’. In honor of the HPSEF upcoming Fossil Festival - All Class Reunion 2020 year long planning and promotion. Some of the players wore a Fossil’s t-shirt (provided by HPSEF) not according to age, just for fun.
The Havre High TSA, tech clubs, had concessions available. The participating players (and year they graduated) were: Grayson Winsor ’08 * Kenny Pester ’08 * Jacob LaBrie ’17 * Jase Kato ’15 * Jonathan Faber ‘14 Nate Korb ’17 * Kade Rismon ’14 * Kassidy Compton ’19 * Lauren Kato ’19 * Ryen Olson ‘18 Kaylee Nystrom ’18 * Jacob Sedahl ’17 * Morgan Mazurkiewicz ’15 * Austin DeLaRosa ‘19 Trey Murphy ’18 * Ivar Aageson ’18 * Abbey Morse ’19 * Kaden Keto ’09 * Kevin Tibbetts ‘09 Greg Kinholt ’77 * Travis Abdullah ’77 * Tysen Sangrey ‘19
The ‘Fossil’s’ won the main event. Thanks, girls and guys of all ages for a great evening.
