Grudge matches just don’t get any better than this. Or more fun either.

Bragging rights will be on the line — most likely for years to come — when the senior class squares off against Friday Harbor High School’s faculty (and friends) in the “Clash on the Hardcourt”, annual fundraiser for “Senior Night” at graduation.

Sponsored by the Friday Harbor High School PTA, the evening’s entertainment gets under way at 5 p.m., with dinner in the high school commons, a hamburger or hot dog meal. $10 adults, $5 children. Activities include a dessert auction and a “split-the-pot” raffle drawing.

Tip-off for the faculty versus seniors (and allies) is 6:30 p.m. If history repeats, the outcome on the court could well be determined by which team winds up with the ball and drains a buzzer-beater in the closing seconds of the contest. Don’t go hungry, the competition is bound to be dizzying just on its own. Info, 378-4014.
