FHS Alumni Victorious Over Piscataway In Annual Basketball Game

Franklin High School basketball alumni beat their counterparts from Piscataway High School Nov. 21 in the second annual watch between the two teams.

After being tied at 52 point each after the third quarter, the Warriors found themselves down by as much as 7 points to the Superchiefs.

But they fought back and closed the gap, after which both teams traded the lad before the Warriors took the final lead, winning 68-64.

The event’s organizer, Kyle Pitts, said the game was meant to “bridge the gap between alumni and students.”

Scholarships were awarded to two teams of students for their audio-visual work. The scholarships – $500 each – were donated by  Daryl Phills, Class of ’96 and Robert Edmund, Class of ’95.

Pitts said plans are underway for a financial literacy program for high school students.,

“It’s really financial legacy,” he said. “A lot of these kids have an entrepreneurial spirit, and we was to take it to the next level.”

The scholarships were announced at halftime, after which the FHS dance team performed.

Here are some scenes from the game:
