NP3 High will hold its annual homecoming basketball game in the gym on Friday, April 8.

Doors will open at 4:30 p.m. with the basketball games scheduled for 5-7:30 p.m.

Each grade level is represented by a team of 10 students and one or two coaches.

Jonathan England and Peter Riehl are coaching the senior team, Casey Harris and Jennifer Hembree the junior team, Katie Durham and Bennae Dillingham the sophomore team, and NP3 junior Ira “Santi” Shabazz is the freshman team coach.

The freshman team is scheduled to play the sophomore team 5-6 p.m. and the junior team is set to play the senior team from 6:30-7:30 p.m.

In addition to the basketball games, the dance team has plans for four performances — one before each game and one during half time for each game.

Tickets went on sale during lunch today, April 4 and will be sold every day except Wednesday, April 6. There will be no tickets sold at the door. Tickets cost $5 per person.

The number of tickets being sold will be limited due to COVID-19 precautions, according to NP3 High Student Government secretary and one of the organizers Christopher Loupeda.

“So 75 tickets are allowed for each grade and if we have to expand, juniors and seniors will get priority,” said Loupeda. “We won’t require the people playing to wear masks but they will be tested.”

Loupeda also confirmed eating will not be allowed in the gym.

“…but if you do want to eat it has to be outside,” he said.

Snacks such as popcorn and nachos will be sold at the snack bar.
