Bas­ket­ball play­ers that span the gen­er­a­tions came to­gether to play at the St. An­thony’s Sabres Alumni games.

The sev­enth an­nual Se­nior Sabres Alumni bas­ket­ball games were on Thurs­day, De­cem­ber 22. This was an ex­cel­lent chance for younger play­ers to learn from more ex­pe­ri­enced play­ers, and also see how sports have a last­ing ef­fect on an ath­lete’s life.

At 6 p.m., fe­male play­ers from St. An­thony’s play­ing to­day took on alumni play­ers from the Se­nior Girls Sabres teams from pre­vi­ous years. This time the alumni play­ers got the best of the cur­rent play­ers.

Af­ter that, the boy's teams took to the court. There was a full slate of play­ers from pre­vi­ous teams tak­ing on the cur­rent Sabres’ ros­ter. The alumni play­ers sweated out the win.

The Alumni Game has be­come a tra­di­tion for the school. It is a chance to catch up with for­mer play­ers and have a lit­tle bit of fun on the court.
