The annual Black and Gold Games at Sloan-Hendrix took place on Thursday, October 13, 2011 in the Bill McCurley Gymnasium.  The inter-team play is the traditional tip off for the basketball season for the Greyhounds and is looked forward to by Hound fans with much anticipation.  To enhance the Greyhound Spirit, SHHS digital communications students produced a PSA and flyers and posters for the event and students and staff dressed in their Black and Gold finest throughout the Sloan-Hendrix campus on the day of the games. Outstanding basketball action was made all that much better with free admission and free burgers supplied by Citizen's Bank.  The evening culminated with the unveilng of Bill McCurley's portrait which will hang in the gymnasium which bears his name and with the dedication of a stadium seat to the late Donald Stephens.   As usual for the Black and Gold Games, the Hounds were victorious over their rivals (except for the senior girls game which resulted in a tie).  It looks to be another great year for Sloan-Hendrix basketball.  Go Hounds!
