Championship team reunites after 30 years

posted in: News article | 0

The men’s basketball team at Chemeketa traditionally kicks off their season with an alumni game, where former Storm players come back to face off on the hardwood with the current squad.

But this year’s alumni weekend, held last week, also had a special feature: An official reunion of the 1988-89 men’s team that won Chemeketa’s first men’s basketball title following the merger of the Oregon’s community colleges into the Northwest Athletic Conference (formerly the Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges).

Several players and coaches showed up to a practice the team held the night before the Alumni game and posed for a photo with their championship banner.

Men’s basketball’s first home game is Monday, Nov. 19 against the Willamette University JV.
