There were princesses, pirates, and even a Manny Ramirez sighting on Tuesday evening at the Milton H. Johnson Health Center. All came to enjoy the second annual Chipola Haunted Hoops, coordinated with the help of the Chipola Public Relations department.
The Chipola Chearleaders, BSA Dance Team, and men’s and women’s basketball programs performances left those in attendance with both a sweet tooth from the Trick-or-Treating, and a taste of what to expect this fall and winter when they come to Chipola basketball games.
“I thought the event went really well,” said Chipola Head Coach Greg Heiar. “It’s a great opportunity for the kids to come out and meet our players and coaches.”
“It’s also a great opportunity for our players to have some fun by interacting with our fans and the community.”
The men’s basketball team put on both a 3pt shootout and slam-dunk contest for all in attendance.
Perhaps the highlight of the night came when Heiar wowed the crowd during his introduction. With the lights turned out, the 4th year Chipola coach entered the arena dressed as the Chipola Indian mascot.
“I thought the costume was appropriate,” said Heiar. “I want everyone to be excited about the Chipola Indians and what we have this season.”
