Nike Field Trip
On November 13, members of the men’s basketball team joined students from four other city schools as special invited guests at Nike’s “Pop-up” Lebron James store in Soho. Free transportation to the event was provided. The students enjoyed pizza and other Italian specialties while reclining on leather couches inside the brief edition to the Nike empire. The students also watched the New York Knicks v. Cleveland Cavaliers game on large plasma televisions.
Barrington Burgess, an 11th grader, was selected to answer a trivia question and answered the question correctly. As a result he was given a vintage pair of Lebron James sneakers valued at $250.00. Blackberries, Playstation 3's, sneakers, tickets to NBA games and digital cameras were also given to contest winners.
