Turn Back the Clock
On Saturday, December 20, 2014, the Fort Loramie Athletic Department will be having a “Turn Back the Clock” game as our Boy’s Basketball program takes on the Lehman Catholic Cavaliers. The purpose of this game is to honor the 1977 State Basketball Champions, the first state championship in Fort Loramie history, and recognize what their accomplishments have done for the district and community. In addition to the game, we will have The Grand Lake Soundwaves, a barbershop style a cappella four part harmony group out of Celina, provide us with the pregame God Bless America and The National Anthem.
Please see below for details of the game as this special event will be held in a different location than normal and ticket sales will be similar to that of a tournament game.
The game will be played in the current Junior High gymnasium which served as the home court of the Redskins before the new High School gym was built. This location was selected because it was the very first gymnasium in which Fort Loramie ever played a TRUE home game. Prior to the 1977 team winning the State Championship, all “home” games were played in Minster. Because of the teams success and the hard work of a newly established GYM Committee, Fort Loramie not only had a new gymnasium built, but an entirely new junior high and high school!
Due to the limited amount of seating in this location, ticket sales will be PRESALE ONLY! NO PASSES (league, senior citizen, season, etc.) will be accepted. You MUST have a ticket to enter the game. There are only 650 available tickets, so please get them early as there will not be any tickets available at the door.
Adults: $6 Students: $4 Fort Loramie Senior Citizens: $2
Tickets for this event will go on sale Monday, December 15. Tickets can only be purchased at the high school and elementary main offices between the hours of 8:00am and 3:30pm Monday and Tuesday. On Wednesday and Thursday they will be sold from 8:00am to 3:30pm at the high school and elementary offices, then go on sale again from 5:00pm – 7:00pm in the Athletic Office.

The history, the atmosphere and the community support will surely make this a night to remember! We look forward to seeing a SOLD OUT crowd for this game to recognize an outstanding accomplishment and to cheer on our current Redskin basketball players!
