Mount View holds second annual alumni night
The Future MSAD 3 fundraising group held its second annual Alumni Night event at Mount View High School in Thorndike, Saturday, Jan. 6.
The evening was kicked off by Alumni Chamber Singers doing an a capella rendition of the Star Spangled Banner. Under the direction of Dave Stevenson, were Scott Smith, Hayleigh Kein, Emily Newell, Amanda Larrabee, Anna Piotti and Wendy Gibbs.
The first basketball game of the evening was played by the alumni women. A group of 17 ladies, divided into two teams. Coach Steve Bennett’s ‘green’ team ended up winning over Coach Erica Gabbianelli’s players. Alumni women represented graduation dates from 1997 to 2012.
Following the women’s game, 21 alumni men took to the court, coached by Greg Reid and Steve Caron. Team divisions were allocated by younger versus older players. Though the older guys gave them a run for their money in the beginning, the younger guys, with their energy and youth, held on to the winning score. Graduation dates represented with the alumni men ranged from 1984 to 2012.
Cheering for the teams were alumni cheerleaders Ashlee Lizotte, Alyssa Schiessl, Travis Cole, Hayle Grover, Brittany Flewelling, Shelby Murdock, MyKayla McCormick and Dani Fleming.
Susan Piotti won the 50/50 raffle and generously returned her winnings to Future MSAD 3.
