On Friday, February 16, 2018, we will be hosting Severna Park High School in Girls and Boys Varsity Basketball contests. Last year, the SPHS vs. BHS games were sold out and we had over 5,000 in attendance for the SPHS vs. BHS football game earlier this year. In an effort to assist our students in making good choices and to accommodate the expected large crowds, we will continue with our alternate plan relative to how BHS students will be admitted to and dismissed from the game. This information will be shared with our students, but we wanted to provide it for our parents and ask that you have a conversation with your child about it as well.
All tickets will be sold online and in advance of the start of the games. Broadneck High School will have the online ticket purchase link made available on Monday morning at 8 AM and Severna Park will have access to the link the following morning. We will send another Blackboard Connect Message on Monday morning with the ticket link. AACPS, MPSSAA, Senior Citizen, and BHS 10-Game Passes will be honored at the door until gym capacity is reached. Pass holders who are concerned about gym capacity being reached should consider purchasing a ticket online in advance. Please purchase your tickets early so that we ensure a “home crowd advantage.”
On the night of the games, we are requiring our students to park in the back lot (Chestnut Tree Dr.) and enter through the back side of the gym in the trophy hall. Students will be greeted there by Administration and directed to the student section. Students may only enter through the main lobby if accompanied by a parent. When the game is over we will have our students exit through the back of the gym to the Chestnut Tree Dr. parking lot. Again, students will not be permitted to exit through the main lobby unless accompanied by a parent.
Our students have demonstrated time and time again that they are able to behave responsibly and are able to make good choices which has allowed us to hold this event on a Friday night for the second consecutive year. It is our hope and expectation that they will demonstrate their exceptional character again that evening.
We are looking forward to some great basketball and hope to see our students there supporting their classmates in a positive manner.
