Harlem Wizards

(Editor's note: The following information was submitted by Tewksbury Build.)

Come support our brave residents who are willing to take on the Harlem Wizards at the Tewksbury High School, Saturday, April 9 at 7 p.m.!  

Cheer as Superintendent Dr. O’Connor coaches the Habitat Hammers players: Kathy Carleton (Dewing’s first grade teacher), Mrs. Lori Hyland (Trahan’s third grade teacher), Jodi Higgins (Gym Teacher at Dewing/North Street), Jennie Welch (TPD Safety Officer), Mark Bradley (TMHS Girls Varsity Coach), Phil Conners (TMHS Boys Varsity Coach), several senior TMHS girls’ and boys’ varsity players, Ron Druin (Tewksbury’s athletic director), and youth basketball league directors, Ken Griffin, Ken Duffet, and Annmarie Veits.  We hope that the evening’s referee, TMHS teacher, Jim Sullivan, is able to call a fair game!

At a Wizard’s game, fans will witness amazing basketball talent as demonstrated by a magical display of tricks, coordinated ball handling, fancy passing and aerodynamic athleticism combined with high-energy comedy and audience interaction. Interested in seeing a clip of the Wizards in action?  Check out the video online at 

This night of basketball wizardry is going to be an outstanding event for families around Tewksbury and all for a great cause. If you didn't want to spend $30+ plus parking to go see the Globetrotters, come to Tewksbury Memorial High School on April 9th to see the always entertaining Harlem Wizards!
