The Kennedy High School student government and Sports Boosters hosted their annual Jam the Gym events on Jan. 29 and Feb. 9 in order to support the girls and boys basketball teams.

The nights were filled with fun and spirit for teachers, students and their families. Hundreds of people “jammed the gym” to support the teams while having the chance to participate in entertaining halftime games and raffles.

On Jan. 29, the fans packed the stands to cheer the girls on as they competed against Great Neck North. It was exciting to see the girls defeat their opponent; senior Cora Travaglione led the Cougars and earned the Player of the Game honor.

Again students filled the gym on Feb. 9 to show the same support for the boys. Fans held up signs and pictures to show their love. The boys put a good fight but lost a close match to Carey.

During both events, students participated in halftime contests like Ultimate Knockout and Guess the Final Score. Dozens of other raffles were held during the night.
