This Friday there may be a Stomp directly after the basketball game. The dance will ONLY happen if 200 students attend the Friday Basketball game. Attend the basketball game on Friday, January 20th. It is a jersey out, which means wear your best jersey! A stomp is an informal dance that is FREE of charge. The dance will begin after the basketball game and end at 10 pm. It will be located in the Aux Gym.
