Shortridge Athletic Department - 2011 & 2012
Groundbreaking for the new 3,000-seat gymnasium held September 9th; completion anticipated by October 2012. The current gymnasium will continue to be used as a practice facility for boys' and girls' athletic programs.
The Athletic Department is declaring the 2011-2012 boys' and girls' basketball season as the "Year of the Alumni," and alumni are encouraged to attend. A great way to support the teams and school with the season ticket offer below.
* Season ticket offer: If alumni wish to attend ANY game hosted by an IPS school, this is the real deal and Shortridge can benefit. Thirty dollars ($30) will buy an all-year season pass to any IPS game -- football, basketball, baseball, track -- hosted by an IPS school. AND for every season pass purchased from Shortridge, the school receives $20. (There is no restriction that it applies only to Shortridge sports ... any IPS school sport.) If you are interested in purchasing a season ticket, contact Stephen Papesh, athletic director.
