I enjoyed attending the Batesville Boys Basketball Alumni game last Friday afternoon. A very even, entertaining game was enjoyed by those in attendance. The game itself was played mainly by the alumni who graduated after 2010. These young men are still very active and fit.In the early days of this game, Coach Garrett divided the players into recent graduates and old-timers. Two separate games were played. It was very entertaining to watch the old-timers attempt to regain their youth, but I think after a few injuries among the older group it was decided to play just one game with the younger guys. There were a few older alumni in the crowd, including myself.This alumni game is a nice way to kick off another boys’ basketball season.
