There was plenty of food and drinks being sold in the café along with spirit wear from the PTA and lollipops from the student council and Hershey kisses from the cast of Oliver. [The cast of Oliver is currently in rehearsals for their upcoming March 10-11.] 

The girls game was a nail bitter with Green Brook edging past Deerfield, 21 to 18. The boys game was a continual back and forth, with Green Brook overpowering the hard playing Deerfield boys, 60-48.
"Spirit Night is a wonderful event to bringing  two communities together for a common goal," said Athletic Director, Debbie Weiss. "Congratulations to all teams for playing so well. We are looking forward to next year’s Spirit Night already!"
