Usually when I work for the Gazette, I cover Emporia High sports. It only makes sense, because I’m usually there anyway. Well, tonight, even though I was covering ESU, it had a VERY EHS feel to it. The men’s basketball team was taking on Bethany College tonight and two of the Hornets are former Spartans. Taylor Euler is in his 3rd year with the Hornets and his former teammate, Troy Pierce is in his first year with ESU, playing in his senior season. It was fun to watch players I saw “grow up” in the Spartan gym, playing at the next level.
Besides the players on the court, there were also three EHS alums on the cheer squad. Haley Risley, Drew Garza and Jenna Peters are all members of the Hornet cheer squad…it was fun getting to see them do something they enjoy tonight too!
