Colton Cops Teachers To Battle For Hoops Supremacy And Fundraising 2009: Tonight Colton

Colton cops teachers to battle for hoops supremacy and fundraising

Tonight, at Colton High School’s Ken Hubbs Gym, a charity basketball game will pit a team of Colton police officers against a team of
the school’s faculty. “I though it was going to be a friendly game, but the teachers, they’ve got their minds set on beating us,” joked Officer Gregg Gerth of the police team. “That’s not going to happen. We’re going to wipe the floor with them. In a bold prediction, Gerth stated his team will likely win by 80 points. “It’s not even going to be close,” he said. Athletic Director David Drake said all of the money raised from the game will go toward the school’s Student Athlete Recognition Awards Program. The program gives awards to outstanding student athletes for their accomplishments on and off the field, he said. “We do a lot of stuff on campus to recognize our kids for being great student athletes,” Drake said. Drake cited the girls tennis team as one example, which finished its season with an average grade point average of 3.56.
The program’s aim is raising money to purchase banners for the school’s gym and letterman jacket patches that honor the accomplishments of students athletes, he said.
