Tonight at six in the VHS gym, the girls basketball team will face Belvidere in the quarterfinals of the state basketball championship. We can’t promise, but, if you get there on time, there’s a good chance you’ll get to hear Annie Palmer, a senior VHS cheerleader, belt out the National Anthem to start off the game. What a great way to psych up the Hillbilly faithful. We’ll be waiting anxiously to hear how the boys fare in their quarterfinal match in Boonton that starts at 7 p.m. Check out our scoreboard for the results later this evening.
Here’s Annie at the girls’ opening round playoff game on Monday, caught on video by MyVeronaNJ photographer Bo Kirby:
