Addison Trail hosts annual Pack the Place

On Jan. 26, Addison Trail hosted its annual Pack the Place event, which featured Addison Trail Girls Basketball Team and Boys Basketball Team games against Morton District 201. Although the teams didn’t win, the community support and school spirit were tremendous!

On the court, Girls Basketball Team Head Coach Rob Schader (pictured below, left) and Boys Basketball Team Head Coach Brendan Lyons (pictured below, right) donned white tuxedos while they coached, as the result of a Twitter contest to promote Pack the Place and as part of the school’s “Whiteout” to show Blazer Pride during the games.

Halftime performances featured the school’s Energy Rush, Orchesis and a special preview of Addison Trail’s winter musical, “Singin’ in the Rain,” which takes place on Feb. 1, 2 and 3 (see details at https://www.dupage88.net/site/page/7941). The Blazettes also danced with participants from their Winter Dance Clinic, where girls in kindergarten through eighth grade worked on pom/dance techniques and enjoyed crafts and pizza.

The week ended with a Winter Formal Dance on Jan. 27, which had a record-breaking attendance of about 500 participants.
