PHS to host alumni game

PRINCETON — Former Princeton Tiger basketball players will get the chance to suit up one more time in Prouty Gym.

Princeton High School will be hosting an alumni basketball game for all former players at 2 p.m. April 5. The format will depend upon the number and ages of players, but PHS athletic director and head varsity coach Jesse Brandt said they will likely be divided by players graduating in odd numbered years vs. players graduating in even numbered years.

“I am looking forward to former players coming back to PHS and getting to play in Prouty Gym. I am hoping we get a lot of guys to play,” Brandt said. “I look forward to meeting some of the players that were here before me and getting to watch them play.”

The cost is $20, which includes a numbered T-shirt. Interested alumni may call Brandt at 815-875-3308 to sign up. They will need to sign a waiver form.

On the mend: LaMoille/Ohio coach Brent Kalsto is home recovering from corrective heart surgery. He said he was able to get home a little ahead of schedule. Assistant coach Curt Folk took over for Kalsto during regionals.

1,000-point club: Mendota junior John Carroll became the latest member of the 1,000 point club, going over the coveted century mark Feb. 14. With 1,073, he’ll have a shot at Willie Hanson’s No. 2 slot with 1,685. Don Hamel (class of 1969) stands No. 1 at 2,158.

Previously this season, seniors Harold Fay of PC, Shiela Browning of LaMoille and John Carroll of Ottawa joined the 1,000-point club.
