More than 70 students filled the McKelvey Gym to participate in the annual Hoops for Heart basketball tournament on February 11. Helping to kick-off Spirit Week at Derby, teams went head-to head in an exciting double-elimination tournament in recognition of February being American Heart Month.
Congratulations to the tournament winners; the Grade 8 team of Tyler Cashman, Brendan McGovern, Madeline Synnestvedt, and Nick Wanderly, the Grade 6/7 team of Hailey Hill, Ben Merrill, and William Synnestvedt, and the Grade 4/5 team of Joseph Fisher, Calib Sadhwani, and Andy Stanton for their performances on the courts!
Participants helped bring awareness of heart disease and raised more than $600 for the American Heart Association. Thank you to all the players and volunteers who helped make the evening a successful event. Your involvement promotes healthier living and makes a difference in the lives of others.
