A handful of brave Weare Middle School staff members took on the daunting challenge of a staff vs. basketball team game Dec. 7. Staff and coaches from WMS teams played hard against both the boys’ and girls’ basketball teams and represented their colleagues well. The boys team came away with a 14-13 win over the staff, whereas the girls suffered a one point loss in overtime, after they tied the game at the buzzer, ending regulation play. All three teams had a great time and showed off their skills, enthusiasm, and most of all, sportsmanship.
