For the luckier ones in warmer regions, winter has certainly come in Seattle. The days have shortened, the temperature has dropped, and the first snow has fallen. But, on the other side of this seasonal coin are the many benefits winter brings: winter sports, the holidays, and hopefully more snow days.
For Overlake, the winter has brought the beginning of basketball. The season began to a musical beat on November 30th, where the girls team had a huge win but the boys an unfortunately close loss. Throughout the season, there are a variety of home game promotion nights, including but not exclusive to Green and Gold Spirit Night and Teacher Appreciation Night. I was personally holding out for John Wiley Look-Alike-Night, but it sadly didn’t make the cut.
A better night, however, did - Alumni Night! Whether you’re returning home for the holidays or living locally, we would love to have you join us in a night dedicated to you.
The Who: You.
The What: Alumni Night @ Varsity Boys Basketball Game
The Where: Overlake Gym
The When: Tuesday, December 21st, 7:30pm
The Why & The Plan:
If you are among the first 30 alum to arrive, you will receive a free “Overlake Athletics” t-shirt, which are being made especially for this night. I might be biased, but these shirts are the bellwether of fashion. Not to worry if you are the 31st alum to arrive though, as there will also be a general raffle with equally great gifts. And for those who are energetically inclined, there will be half-time festivities to keep the crowd going.
So whether you’re here for the holidays or living locally, come stop by Overlake on Tuesday, December 21st for a t-shirt, a chance to see current students and faculty, and to support our stellar athletes in their match against Shoreline Christian.
Hope to see some of you soon!
