Faculty, staff and students from State Fair Community College, the Sedalia 200 School District and Sacred Heart came together Oct. 1 at the Fred E. Davis Multipurpose Center to raise money for the Sedalia- Pettis County United Way.
The night’s events included a basketball game between teams from Sacred Heart and the Sedalia 200 School District, with SFCC employees on both teams.
The game was played under different scoring rules than regular basketball. Each basket was worth three points, with each institution donating a dollar per point to United Way. The game ended in a tie at 129, bringing the total donation to $387 from the game. The total amount of money raised from the event, including the game and other activities, was $1,919.
The SFCC men’s and women’s basketball teams and SFCC Spirit Squad were introduced to the crowd at halftime. The Roadrunners and Lady Roadrunners participated in a hotshot contest in players tried to score as many points as they could shooting from various spots on the court. Lady Roadrunners sophomore forward Sydonia Daniels and Roadrunners freshman wing Jerrard Davis won the competition.
The event also included performances by the SFCC Spirit Squad, the Smith-Cotton High Voltage dance team and Smith-Cotton and Sacred Heart cheerleaders.
Members of the Lady Roadrunners and Roadrunners also participated in a three-point contest. Sophomore guard Joe Thomasson won the contest for the Roadrunners and sophomore guard Adella Randle-EL won the contest for the Lady Roadrunners. Randle-EL defeated Thomasson in a “Battle of the Sexes” to win the contest overall.
