Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a joyous time to remember those who have passed away. In Mexico, ancient Aztec traditions were combined with Christianity during the Spanish conquest. As a result, each year families construct colorful altars or ofrendas in their homes that essentially welcome the spirit of their loved ones on November 1st and 2nd.
It was a special night as we welcomed back our WPIAL and State Championship team from a year ago! A special pregame dinner and a pregame ceremony at center court brought back many wonderful memories. This year's team shook off a slow start prompted by Laurel's slowdown efforts in the first quarter to post a good victory over a good Laurel team.
All of the good play during practices and games is so important, but nothing beats seeing the alumni coming back and enjoying their time with our current players. We are also so luck to have our alumin families return and share fun times with our current families.
