On March 16, 2018, Centennial High School hosted the annual Homewood basketball game. The game, which took place during fourth period, was watched by students and faculty. The friendly, yet competitive game was played by students who qualified for the game after winning the tournament in the Sports for Life class.

The not-so-serious commentators of the game included Seniors Meg Thompson, Dylan Toth, and Chris Hopkins. The score was accurately kept by the Centennial boys Varsity basketball manager, Terry Kim.

The Eagles were coached by members of both the girls and boys basketball teams. The starting lineup consisted of Seniors Jake Horen, Josh Horen, Michael Pellegrini, Alex Keppler, and Andy Lee. The Eagles constantly rotated players throughout the game, due to complaints from the bench and student section.

The Eagles came out strong against the opposing team, ending the first half with a convincing lead of 36-16.

Centennial’s Dance III performed an upbeat routine at halftime. The group of 18, danced in unison to “You Don’t Know Me” by Jax Jones featuring RAYE.

The Centennial Eagles wrapped up the game with a final score of 78-30
