Dynamic Duo on the Court- Unruh Brothers
Daniel, a 2017 Elida graduate is now a freshman playing for the ONU Polar Bears.
On the road November 28, Daniel made a basket at the end of game buzzer to lead the team to a 65-62 victory over Thomas More, KY. You can watch Daniel make the end of game basket HERE.
In similar fashion, Daniel's brother Evan, a freshman at Elida High School, repeated the move when he sank a 3 pointer in the Tip-Off Classic last Friday night, to win the game 47-44 over LCC. Great job by both of these young athletes who obviously share some great DNA!

Items can be dropped off in the Academic lobby Christmas tree and will earn a bone ornament to place on the Christmas tree.
A drawing will be held December 20 for gift cards. Winners will be announced at the end of the day. There are flyers posted in the high school hallways for a listing of needed items to donate.
