The Frontier High School Alumni Association classes 1969 to 1989 recently held its first annual basketball tournament.
Fifteen teams of both men and women played in the double elimination tournament that was held the weekend of March 7, 8, and 9 in the Hank Morus gymnasium at the Frontier High School. Team sport programs, coaches, alumni, and many others worked the tournament. Monies raised will be split among the sport programs who helped run the tournament and the Alumni Association. The Alumni Association would like to thank each and every person who came to watch the games, bought concessions, prepared food for concessions, the parents of the students who helped throughout the weekend, the students who worked, coaches, alumni, those that advertised for us, anyone who donated towards the tournament, or helped work. With all of our combined efforts, our first of many tournaments to come was a huge success.
If you have a senior at FHS in the 2013-2014 school year, please have them check with the school guidance department. There are current scholarship guidelines and applications available. Please see that your senior has the form filled out and returned to the alumni association by the deadline of April 25.
