With such a great turnout last year, Winton Woods City Schools will continue to honor the legacy of the former Forest Park and Greenhills High Schools at the second annual varsity basketball game. In recognition of both schools, Assistant Athletic Director Jeff Merrill says the Winton Woods High School varsity boys’ basketball players will wear jerseys from each school’s past designs. On Saturday, February 9, the team will be sporting the white Greenhills Pioneers uniforms and on Wednesday, February 13, the blue Forest Park Chargers uniforms. The community is invited to dress in their schools’ spirit wear as we cheer and celebrate both legendary historical athletic programs and their communities.
“Last year, there was a huge turnout and the stories that alumni were able to share was just what we were aiming for,” said Merrill. “Hopefully, through those historic moments and the number of alumni and friends that returned, our students were able to get a sense of community pride and a feel for the rich history that athletics/basketball played in the development of our current program. It is always better to have a vision of where you are going if you have a great sense of where you have been.”
Both games will take place in the Winton Woods High School gymnasium. Tip-off is at 7:30 p.m. Admission is $6. For more information, contact the athletic office at (513) 619-2425.
