Fayette’s 1995 basketball team was a good one, when the boys made it all the way into the regional finals. The Eagles were one game away from Columbus when they lost to the eventual state champions.
They’ll see if they still have what it takes this Saturday when several members of the 1995 team take on an alumni squad of players who graduated later.
That clash is the second of two contests. First, at 6 p.m., a team of alumni who now serve as coaches will face the older squad—those from 1992 and earlier.
The two alumni games will serve as a fund-raiser for the Class of 2011. A 50/50 drawing will be included that night.
