After a brief break,Verbum Dei High School’s Associated Student Body will host Late Night Hoops on March 29 from 6:00 to 9:00 P.M. inside the Eagle’s Nest.
ASB hopes that the event will present Verbum Dei students and athletes with a pleasurable activity to relax and take their minds off the rigorous interim assessments previously taken.
In order to join and play pickup basketball with friends, and guests, students must pay a $2 fee. Although ASB is allowing guests to join the activity, the event will not be advertised to other schools, which allows Verb students to enjoy the time with close friends and family.
Chips, snacks, and drinks will be sold at the event in support of future ASB events.
“I believe it will be a very successful event,” said Arturo Ramirez, ASB Vice President. “Basketball is a popular sport here at Verb, so I can almost guarantee lots of people will show up.”
“I believe this late night hoops event will attract a broad audience,” said senior Khyree Dodson. “Basketball is not only a sport, [but it also] brings a huge crowd together. I’m expecting to meet new people and to see alumni at the event.”
