Friday, February 24th, was Basketball and Cheerleader Parent Appreciation/ Alumni Night. What a night!
It started, as it should, with the basketball players and cheerleaders thanking their parents for their support and presenting their moms with a Bobcat blue-tinged carnation.
Then the gym started heating up as dozens of former Immanuel players, cheerleaders and parents arrived to fill the gym for back to back basketball showdowns. The ladies took to the court first and a fast-paced game between the alumni girls and our current Bobcat girls ensued. Current and former cheerleaders kept the crowd rooting on the players. The alumni girls gave the current Bobcats a run for their money.
Then the alumni boys took to the court to face our current Bobcat boys. The alumni boys were doing their best Harlem Globetrotter impersonations, complete with slam dunk attempts, but our current Bobcats stuck to their solid fundamentals and edged out the alumni by 1 point. To end the evening, the older boys and a couple of the girls played an exciting bonus round of alumni versus alumni hoops.
We are grateful to all the Bobcat families, past and present, who came to make the night a great success!
