The first boys basketball home game of the year will be a special one.
On Tuesday, Dec. 10, during a game against Albert Lea, the Winhawks will honor all employees in the district with WAPS staff appreciation night. The varsity players will be escorted onto the court by a teacher or staff member of their choice.
In addition, the Hoops Club is hosting "The Best Seats in the House" contest. Fans can put their name into a jar when they come to the JV game. One name will be drawn from the jar and announced before the tipoff of the varsity game. The winner — and the winner's friends — can sit in the best seat in the house and will be given two free bags of popcorn.
Also on Tuesday nights, the Hoops Club spirit committee will be choosing one fan with the most positive school spirit, and they will receive a free medium pizza and a $10 gift card to Nate & Ally's.
