Alumni basketball game goes OT
The men’s game had to go to a twominute overtime before the “Amp It Up” Team Sherry Black team edged the White team, 71-66, at Swartz Creek High. In the women’s game, the White squad beat the Black team, 48- 33.
Proceeds went to the Swartz Creek hoops program and the “Amp It Up” Team Sherry Cancer Benefit Fund. The games were started by Andrea Moleski and Keri Pifer, whose mother, Sherry (Lord) Czerwinski, passed away from Stage 4 breast cancer on April 24. Their mission is to comfort those battling cancer in her memory, and they will be donating flat-screen TVs to local treatment centers and Kindles and iPads to patients to use during their chemo appointments.
Nearly 50 former players and coaches participated in the games, which consisted of 10-minute quarters and a running clock. The oldest players were Randy Henry, Class of 1971, and Tim Zeeman and Walt Brimley, both 1975 graduates. Zeeman still holds the career scoring record at the school.
All three played on the men’s Black team, which also had Max Cummings, Dallas Dunlap, Galen Stone, Sean Skergan, Michael Nino, Rick Pifer, Paul Stewart, Matt McKay, Brad Brown, Jeff Taylor, Mike Jewell, Ty Henry and Scott Newhart. The White roster had Scottie Wright, Brad Sepell, Kres Washington, Ryan Trevithick, Tyler Black, Cal Henry, Jacob Gardner, Chris Studer, Matt Holmes, Jonathon Watson and Zach Carter.
The women’s White team had Adrian Trzebiatowski, Lisa Hemgesberg, Kenzie Peak, Jenna Freeman, Kayla Myott, Courtney Chiros, Jordan Jones, Liane Steller and Becky Caldwell. The Black roster had Nicole Jewell, Autumn Henry, Gabrielle Deering, Jessica Hope, Becky Carter (Hoffman), Darcy Hope, Kimberly Hunault, Amy Ranta, Amy Stewart, Stacey Lafay, Melissa Schummer, Andrea Moleski, Michelle Landon, Wendy Malone and Nicole Bair.
