The John Glenn Muskie Boys Basketball team play for those they've lost, for their community and fans, and for each other. From defeats in the post-season to the devastating loss of a former teammate and friend, the Muskie's journey to the State Championship was hard on and off the court, but when they take everything "One Game At A Time", this team could accomplish anything.
Four days after John Glenn boys basketball edged St. Vincent-St. Mary to win its first state championship, the Village of New Concord celebrated in the streets. Head coach Greg Woodard and the Muskies paraded through the streeets and took part in a pep rally at the Fish Tank. The evening also served as a send-off for John Glenn's seniors: Drew Rackley, Matt Weir, Tanner Slack, Austin Blatt, Austin Lowery and Clayton Lake.
The block party will be starting at 4:30 p.m. on Main Street in New Concord. The event will run up until 6 p.m. when the parade starts and it will feature local clubs and businesses providing food, refreshments, and entertainment for the kids.
There will also be a live performance by the band Doublecut in the school park during this event.
Charlotte Colley, New Concord Village Administrator said that this will be a very exciting event.
