Both our boys AND our girls have prevailed in the first two rounds of the playoffs, and now it's on to the Chiles Center for the Quarterfinals! Both teams are scheduled to play the prime time slot - 8:15 pm each night. Boys play Wednesday; girls play Thursday. 

Here are the details:
  • Call time for each day is 6:45 pm
  • Buses will transport us to and from the Chiles Center (University of Portland)
  • We should return around 10:15 or so
  • A win for the boys team will have them playing at 3:15 pm on Friday. We will get information out as soon as it is available about when we'll be heading out.
  • A win for the girls team will have them playing at 8:15 pm on Friday. If the boys are NOT playing Friday afternoon, call time will be 6:45 pm. If the boys ARE playing Friday afternoon, we will go to the boys game, then to dinner, then come back for the girls! More details to come!

It is important that we have as many band members as possible at these performances. If you have homework, please work on it BEFORE we leave for the Chiles Center. If you have an unavoidable conflict, please talk to McKee right away.

Yay for basketball playoffs! Go Tigers!
