Nothing is more entertaining than staying out late watching the basketball team play against a wheelchair basketball team. Every year the boys and girls basketball teams are defeated in wheelchair basketball by the Jammers while raising money for them as well.

Usually, Late Night consists of each class doing a skit and putting on this talent show for the school, but for the past two years they have played the Jammers in a wheelchair basketball game. The Jammers bring some extra wheelchairs for the teams for the boys and girls to take turns suiting up to play against them.

The coaches do a great job at making this night happen. The girls varsity coach, Jade Allison, came up with the idea and has made it a fun tradition for the school.

“I wanted to try something fun and different. My friend had contacted me several times about helping out with her step daughter’s wheelchair basketball team, but we could never find a good time. Late Night provided an opportunity to partner with the Jammers and raise some funds for their travel to games and tournaments,” Allison said.

Even though the players never stand a chance against the Jammers, they still love the experience of getting to play in a wheelchair and raise money for a good cause. Senior Catherine Easterling enjoys being a part of this tradition every year.

“I love Late Night! It’s a great opportunity for the basketball programs to get together and support a great cause while having fun,” Easterling said.

There are so many great things about Late Night that the players and everyone love. You get amusing entertainment while raising money to support the team. With some of the kids being mentally disabled, it’s really an amazing cause that the team gets to support. Actually, senior Halle Poleman says that it’s her favorite thing about Late Night.

“My favorite thing about Late Night is getting to interact with the team and getting to see all their different personalities before the game and as we play. It is such a fun and amazing experience that I look forward to every year,” Poleman said.

This is a tradition that the school hopes to keep around over the years. It’s a great way to promote the beginning of the basketball season for the Comets.
