This week, city classrooms are courtside
George Washington's Alexa Peoples was not the only Patriot to celebrate GW's one-point victory over rival South Charleston Wednesday afternoon at the Charleston Civic Center. Hordes of students, teachers and parents took a break to experience tournament basketball.
Principal George Aulenbacher thought the chance to cheer on the girls' basketball team Wednesday at the Charleston Civic Center was enough reason to let Joe Wong and his fellow GW students miss a few hours of class.
South Charleston High School ferried seven buses full of students, including Mark Milam, Wednesday to the Charleston Civic Center to watch the Black Eagles take on the GW Patriots in the girls' state tournament.
