The Houston High School basketball programs are seeking financial support from the community through the annual backboard team.
This year’s funds will be used to purchase travel warm-ups and shooting shirts for the boys as well as upgrade the shooting gun for both teams.
“The school does meet some of our equipment and supply needs,” HHS athletic director and girls’ basketball coach Brent Kell said. “But unfortunately, cannot meet all the needs.”
Businesses and individuals who join the backboard team will have their names in 3 ¼ inch lettering displayed on a board inside Hiett Gymnasium for one year. The minimum donation is $25.
Sponsorships are available through the HHS office or by sending a check to Backboard Boosters, Houston High School, 423 W. Pine, Houston, Mo., 65483. Checks should be made payable to Houston Schools.
For more information, call Kell or HHS boys’ basketball coach Rob Coffey at 417-967-3024 ext. 423.
