For over a decade, Chemeketa staff have squared off against Chemeketa students in a friendly game of basketball.
And once again, the two sides are preparing to square off on the hardwood as Students vs. Staff Smackdown XI is set for a 5:30 p.m. tipoff on Tuesday, March 17 in the Salem campus gym.
Fitting this game is happening on St. Patrick’s Day, as both the staff team and student team will hope the luck of Naomh Pádraig will guide them to victory in this epic clash.
Along with the regular annual grudge match, halftime will feature the opportunity to attempt shots from half court for $1 to receive prizes. Proceeds will benefit the purchase of a Chemeketa Storm mascot costume.
