Friday Night Lights

It's back!  This FRIDAY, Nov. 25th, Claremont will once again host a Friday Night Lights Field Lacrosse game at UVic on the artificial turf at 7:30pm. This annual tradition will see our Senior Boys lacrosse team take on the Washington state powerhouse Mercer Island.  Claremont, we want you to come down and cheer on our team and raise some money for KidsSport, a charity that allows underprivileged children to participate in organized sports. Tickets are $2 in advance and $5 at the door.  Tickets are on sale each day at lunch at the Theatre Box Office in the main hall. Come show your spirit!  The Claremont dancers will be there, we'll have a concession and our mascot will be there to raise spirits!  Let's show the team our Spartan Pride and come out next Friday night!
