Manson Trojan Buddies2019

Some very special guests were in attendance at Manson’s home basketball games on Tuesday, January 22nd.

A total of eight Manson Elementary students participated in the first annual Manson Trojan Buddy program.

Assistant Boys Basketball coach, Steve Nygreen, organized the event and gave elementary students the opportunity to pair up with a high school basketball player.

Prior to the game, Trojan Buddies had the opportunity to spend quality time with high school players and form positive relationships.

During the game, Trojan Buddies cheered on the team from behind the bench and enjoyed a post-game visit to the Trojan locker room to celebrate a victory against Liberty Bell.
