The Spirit of Spring Alumni Basketball Game took place at ECI on April 16. All students were invited and could choose to attend through a buy-out of their last class for a small fee. The alumni/student game took place after the lunchtime game between students and teachers. It was a Ram extravaganza - a sold out event and another step in re-engaging ECI alumni with their alma mater. Although a friendly game, let’s just say the teachers and alumni will be maintaining bragging rights for the year.
A big thank you to Vadim Levin for organizing an alumni team for two years running, the alumni for dusting off their basketball shoes, The ECI Rams and teachers for demonstrating their skills on the court, Julie Maciura for sponsoring the cost of a popcorn machine and Karen Yates for donating drinks and coordinating with Mr. Paisley. Also, thank you to our ECI students who took ownership of this event by managing the entire process efficiently – spreading the word, hauling pop/water/ice, filling coolers and selling tickets – ECI leadership all the way around!
