COLUMBUS – Scoring a basket can be hard for some, but when you’re riding a donkey, shooting hoops becomes quite a difficult task.
On Tuesday night, Dairyland Donkey Ball came to Lakeview High School in Columbus for an event sponsored by the Lakeview Booster Club.
Vice President of the Booster Club, Todd Stuthman, says, “The proceeds after expenses are shared with other groups that come to the school within the student body for if they request a donation of the money that we raise goes back to each organization.”
Students and faculty members from Lakeview high school say Balance, Coordination, and even sweet talking are a few of the core skills needed to play Donkey Basketball.
“If you’ve got the ball and you try to get on it, it really bucked you. But if you sweet talk it enough it worked,” explains Sophomore, Caleb Franzen.
The event held thee games. First sophomores got to go up against faculty members. Afterwards Juniors versed Seniors, and then it all boiled down to a Championship game, where Sophomores faced off against Juniors.
In the end, it was the Sophomore team that took home the big win and were crowned the winners of Donkey Basketball.
