03/20 Update: This event has been postponed due to the inclement weather anticipated. A new date will be announced as soon as it is agreed.
The Lyme-Old Lyme High School Class (LOLHS) of 2017 will be hosting some very special guests this Friday, March 20, from 7 to 9 p.m. in the LOLHS gymnasium. The Harlem Rockets, a talented group of basketball entertainers, who combine showtime basketball skills and family-friendly comedy, will face the All-Star Wildcat Teachers in a game benefiting the Class of 2017,
Having played over 2,500 games in 16 years without a single defeat, the Harlem Rockets offer something for everyone to enjoy. Sports enthusiasts will be intrigued by the pure athleticism and sheer size of the Rockets, while basketball aficionados will be …
- Dazzled by the ball-handling wizardry of Kaseem “The Ankle Breaker” Williams — one of the world’s extraordinary street-ball dribblers, aka … Ankle Breaker.
- Satiated by the game of Junie “King Of The Battleground Champion” Sanders
- Awestruck by high-flying dunks of Anthony “Amazing” Gordon and Angelo “TNT” Gordon.
And since this is comedy basketball, the Harlem Rockets present to you the Zaniest Showman Of All Time … Tex Barnwell. Dubbed “One Of Show Basketball’s All Time Greats,” he is also nicknamed, “The Crowned Prince Of Laughs.”
The Harlem Rockets incorporate the audience, especially children, into the show and are always available to meet the fans and give autographs at halftime and after the game.
In this special fundraising event for the LOLHS Class of 2017, the high school teachers have graciously agreed to face the Harlem Rockets and are expected to give the pro’s a real run for their money!
