The annual basketball game between Centennial students from the Sports for Life classes, and a team from Homewood High School took place on March 8 at Centennial.

In front of a gym packed full of students and faculty, the game was as entertaining as it is every year. Both teams played very hard, and the game ended in a tie, 68-68, after Centennial senior Darius Baker scored in the final seconds.

Seniors Niky Sicilia, Baker, Dougie Barnes, John Hohmann, Tyrel Wilkins, and Austin Kraisser led the game for the Eagles. Juniors Mason Smith, Jun Lee, and sophomores Jeremy Wilson, Ryan Patterson, and Josh Horen were also big contributors.

This was yet another fantastic chapter in the tradition that is the Centennial vs. Homewood game.
