Alumni hoops set for Bear River

The Who’s Who of Bear River basketball past will in take on this year’s team in the Annual Boys and Girls Alumni game Wednesday night.

The boys will tip off at 6 p.m. The girls play at 7:30 p.m.

“The boys have been doing it for as long time. This is only our second year, but we’d like to keep the tradition alive,” Lady Bruin head coach Duwaine Ganskie said. “Last year’s game was nice because we prevailed, but this year might be a little tougher.”

This year’s Lady Bruins will square off against the likes of Bear River legends Jenny Shayani, Michelle St. Clair and Diane Pascua.

“It looks like they’ve got a pretty good crew,” Ganskie said of the alumni team. “They must have gone out and really recruited pretty heavily this year.”
