On Oct. 1 the notorious Thunder basketball team played their yearly Blue and White Scrimmage. Many students, parents and faculty joined together to witness this special opportunity.

This Blue and White Scrimmage is an annual event hosted by the Thunder team. Each year the team picks one lucky school to host this event.

Many students, like Senior Chandler Smith, found joy in seeing North’s facility used by such a renowned and professional team.

“It was really inspiring to see our community to come together to celebrate the thunder and welcome new players to the team right here in our own school,” Smith said.

North had a welcoming day set up with ticket pick up starting at 10:00am. Thunder alley, which is the equivalent to tailgating, took place in the senior parking lot which had food trucks with free entrees and activities for kids.

Prior to the start of the scrimmage Russell Westbrook spoke about the upcoming year for the team and the importance of loyalty.

The Thunder team worked hard to interact with students, especially those of the North basketball team. Junior Chloe Scheitzach, a basketball player at north, considered herself lucky to be able to sit near the benches of the basketball players.

“This experience made me realize how fortunate we are to have an athletic staff that provides us with theses opportunities,”  said Scheitzach. “It motivates our teams to work hard and push ourselves to be the best we can be.”

The Thunder team helped North come together and instill pride in our school by providing an experience students will remember the rest of their lives.
