3rd Annual Midnight Madness Kicks Off Basketball Season


On Thursday, October 8, CCC students, staff, faculty, and administration came out to open the 2009-2010 basketball season with a bang. Once again, the Old School team entertained attendees with their old school techniques and skills. The 3rd Annual Midnight Madness festivities began at 10:30 p.m. with a basketball game pitting the 2009-2010 Cougars against the Old School Team of alumni and staff. The evening continued with relays, contests, and games, complete with the Cougar and several “mascot friends.”

The Old School Team consisted of President “The Doctor of Defense” Stratton, Terry “The Wild Man” Wild (vice president for institutional advancement), Ryan “The Real Deal” Dupee (vice president for student life), Mark “The Dean of Defense” Bates (women’s soccer coach), Matt “Special K” Kellogg (women’s basketball coach), James “Boss” Whitaker (athletic director), Jessica “Jump Queen” Wiedeman (resident director of Emmons Hall), and “Tiny” Jim Sanney (assistant men’s basketball coach).

The oldies held their own and won against the Lady Cougars with a score of 17-15. Their victory was short lived, however, as they lost to the men’s team. Each game was a ten-minute half. Among the other events of the night, the crowd favorites were the dunk contest, the 3 point shooting competition, and the inter-squad game playing the men’s team against each other.

If you missed Midnight Madness this year, put it on your calendar for next season! CCC’s first 2009-2010 regular season home game is on Friday, November 13 against Piedmont Baptist College.
