The Challenge was On! Staff vs. Student Basketball Game

Ms. Rodenhurst, Basketball Coach, is in the game today
The students roared as the Cobra Basketball team ended their season with the annual Staff vs. Students Basketball game. It was a real game with both sides giving it their best.  The teachers were definitely competitive and were not going to be out played by their students.

The teachers did prevail and won the game.

Mr. Kauhane, Mr. Choe and Mr. Takahashi take a leap

The girls gave the teachers a good workout.

Congratulations to the Cobra Basketball team and their coaches for a wonderful season!
