The Plymouth High School boys basketball program plans an Alumni Night to welcome past players home and to honor the state-bound teams from 1981, 1990 and 2008.
Students, staff, families, youth, alumni, and other community members are invited to the event, which will begin at 6:45 p.m. Friday, Dec. 1 in the PHS gym, between the JV and varsity games against Sheboygan South.
“Plymouth has a proud history and tradition in basketball,” said current PHS head coach Tim Schultz. “We want to keep the tradition strong and connecting our current teams with alumni teams is a great way to do this.”
More than 25 coaches, players, and managers from the three PHS boys’ basketball state-bound teams are planning to attend this first-ever Alumni Night, which organizers hope to make an annual event.
Alumni players will be introduced on center court at 6:45 p.m. prior to the 7:15 p.m. varsity tip-off. Half-time entertainment will include lucky fans and alums in a three-point and free-throw shooting contest. Immediately following the game will be a court-side reception to meet the players – past, present, and future.
As 1981 assistant and 1990 head PHS boys basketball coach Bill Mikolyzk said, “Basketball helps develop friendships, lasting bonds, and community identity. It teaches players to become better people.”
