Port Clinton Middle School Hosts “The Last Shot” Event

All good things must come to an end.

The last game to be played at Port Clinton Middle School will take place on Thursday, Feb. 2, when the seventh- and eighth-grade boys take on Huron.

For decades, Redskin players have taken to the court in the 1922 building, which was the high school through 1963. It all comes to an end Feb. 2, as the school district makes way for the new Port Clinton Middle School, which officially opens its doors for the 2012-13 school year.

Bob Polachek, is the PCMS athletic director, seventh-grade boys basketball coach, and has been a PCMS teacher for over 40 years.

“We are inviting any alumni that would like to come and take their last shot at the basket on their home court,” he said.

Polachek added that there will be events throughout the evening, and that those who played at PCMS/PCHS (boys and girls) will be asked to stand. Some may even take the court during halftime of the eighth-grade game to take their last shot at the basket.

Mike Drusbacky, Sr., a member of the 1935 basketball team will assist with the ceremonial tip-off at the start of the seventh-grade game. At the end of the eighth-grade game, there will be a brief ceremony with the current middle school teams on the court.

“This is an opportunity to honor all the past athletes that have played this
court and we hope to have representatives from each decade on Feb. 2,” Drusbacky said.

The seventh-grade game starts at 4:30 p.m., followed by the eighth-grade game at
About 6 p.m.. The brief ceremony will take place at 7:15 p.m.
