On February 14th, the staff took on the seniors in the annual Hoops For Hope basketball game started to raise awareness about teen suicides and warning signs surrounding them. Every year, the money raised for the game by the students is donated to a program or charity, this year’s raised money went to Project Brite Star. Project Brite Star is a program created by two moms of former teens who committed suicide, one being a Beavercreek student, to inform students about the stress factors and warning signs of teen depression and suicide. After Project Brite Star representatives talked to students about this, the staff and seniors prepared to battle it out on the hardwood.

After a back-and-forth game between the two squads, Mr. Green and Mr. Short, two former basketball players, took over the game and brought the teachers back into the game. With a tied game and less than 10 seconds to go on the clock, the teachers ran a play that resulted in a Mr. Short layup for the win as time ran out. Junior Clay Sutor who acted as a referee for the game said, “Reffing the game was a ton of fun, but I just wished I would have rigged the game so the seniors could have gotten their win.” If you are an underclassman consider buying a ticket for next year’s game or consider participating in the three-point contest or knockout game that are also a part of Hoops For Hope. Hoops For Hope provides a chance to inform students about warning signs about teen suicide and host an entertaining senior vs. staff basketball game. Learn more about Project Brite Star here.
