Tonight our boys and girls basketball teams head to Catlin Gabel. Playing our rival is always a big game, but tonight also marks the middle of the season. Like climbing a mountain, many people focus on getting to the pinnacle, but every mountaineer will tell you getting down the mountain is just as challenging. Both teams are battle tested, and have established their team identities after playing fifteen games. Currently our girls and boys are 2nd in the Lewis and Clark League. Starting Saturday they play six more league games, but game locations flip. We are on the road against De La Salle North, PAA, Riverdale, and we get to host Horizon Christian, Westside Christian, and Catlin Gabel. On February 14 we play our final league game and say thank you to seniors and their families. Do not miss these final opportunities to support your basketball teams and see the final games in the OES gym.
Tonight Catlin will be raising money for Nabila Mazzouz's Memorial Fund. Although they are our rival, Catlin is also a great friend and we are grateful for their support and they know that we are here for them, also. Please consider supporting Nabila's Fund by clicking on this link.
