Students, staff face off in Smackdown

Students vs. staff basketball game 2015A glow-in-the-dark basketball.¬†That’s the trophy in the annual Students vs. Staff Smackdown basketball game.

And in the 11th iteration of this annual Chemeketa Community College tradition, held March 17 on Paldanius Court at the Salem campus, the crowd was entertained by two teams that came out for a bit of fun on the hardwood — and possession of a glow-in-the-dark basketball.

The game has held many different functions over the years, including scholarship fundraising. This year, halftime offered the opportunity to pay to take half-court shots, with the proceeds benefitting the purchasing of a school mascot costume.

The student team this year was organized by Ethan Chung from the Office of Student Retention and College Life. The staff team was organized by physics instructor Erik Jensen.

The staff team won the game 78-56, their third consecutive win.
